Currently, participating local councils are providing free RATs to eligible community members, including those aged 70 and older, people with disability, those who are immunocompromised or their carer, and eligible concession card holders.
However, the Department of Health are working towards expanding this in 2023. View this article for more information about free RATs for Victorians.
The Victorian Specialist Immunisation Services (VicSIS) network has been created to address queries, safely vaccinate under supervision and enhance adult immunisation services in Victoria.
The VicSIS network provides specialist vaccination services for people who have experienced an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) with a COVID-19 vaccine, or those who are identified as at risk of an AEFI (for example, people with a history of anaphylaxis). VicSIS can also provide specialist immunisation support, and provide a link between the key stakeholders, the Department of Health, SAEFVIC and hospital sites that form part of the network.
Visit the VicSIS website for more information.

Monash Health does not have a dedicated Long COVID clinic.
Consider referral to relevant Specialist Clinic if appropriate using HealthLink.
