Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Get vaccinated. There are plenty of appointments at state-run vaccination hubs. Many pharmacies and GPs also have capacity. Everyone 12 and over is eligible for a vaccine. Everyone 12-59 is eligible for a Pfizer vaccine at a state-run centre. Find out more on the Vaccine Information Hub page.

With Victoria hitting our 70 per cent first dose vaccination target tomorrow, the Premier has announced some modest easing to restrictions from 11.59pm Friday, 17 September in lockdown areas of metropolitan Melbourne and Ballarat.

The main changes include:

  • additional reason to leave home: outdoor social interaction
  • extended time permitted for exercise and social interactions to 4 hours
  • the distance you can travel from home increasing from 5km to 10km

Many Council services will remain closed. Visit the Council Services and Facilities update webpage for more information.
