One school-based service you might not immediately think of as being impacted by the ups and downs of the 2020 Victorian school year is the Secondary School Immunisation Program. Important vaccines are usually delivered on school grounds to students in Year 7 and Year 10 but the usual schedule was impacted by the move to off-site learning. Catch-up programs are on their way, but in the meantime, parents – you can make sure your teen doesn’t miss out on vaccines they were due this year by checking with your local council immunisation service or your GP.

Celebrating World Hearing Day

Celebrating World Hearing Day

Health Weeks

World Hearing Day is held on 3 March each year to raise awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world. Each year, WHO decides the theme and develops evidence-based advocacy materials such as brochures, flyers, posters, banners, infographics and presentations, among others. These materials are shared with partners in government and civil society around the world as well as WHO regional and country offices. At its headquarters in Geneva, WHO organizes an annual World Hearing Day event. In recent years, an increasing number of Member States and other partner agencies have joined World Hearing Day by hosting a range of activities and events in their countries. WHO invites all stakeholders to join this global initiative.

Statement from the Premier – Read more about Corona virus in Victoria here

I won’t waste words: today hurts.  Victorians know, better than anyone, just how deeply. 

But as we’ve seen – here in Australia and around the world – we are facing a new kind of enemy.

A virus that is smarter, and faster, and more infectious. 

And until we have a vaccine, we need to do everything we can to keep this virus at bay.

In the past 24 hours, five new cases have been identified.
