COVID-19 vaccine is hogging the limelight but please don’t forget your flu shot
The COVID-19 vaccine is hogging the limelight but it’s really important we don’t forget about getting a flu shot before Winter arrives too.
Our Community Health nurses are back on the road delivering flu vaccines to staff at businesses across Greater Bendigo.
Research shows that for every $20 a business spends on staff vaccinations $115 is saved in reducing lost productivity.
If you’d like our nurses to visit your business, community or sporting organisation please email our workplace health team at or call 5406 1477.
Learn more about our workplace flu vaccination options:
Our GPs can provide vaccinations for you and your family too. Call 5406 1200 to make an appointment.
Please remember the COVID vaccine and your flu vaccination must be at least two weeks apart.

Nicely done everyone!

Well done AFS on not only looking after your staff but celebrating your successes which is really important.

Bendigo HeadtoHealth Hub ready to support ‘frontline’ workers

There’s so many ‘frontline’ workers out there from supermarkets, health care facilities and other essential businesses who have done such a wonderful job through an incredibly tough Coronavirus period in 2020.

Bendigo Community Health Services knows this can take a toll, especially given we all wonder what’s ahead in 2021.

We also know returning to work after the festive period can generate a range of emotions.

If you or someone you know is struggling please reach out for help through our new HeadtoHelp Hub by calling 1800 595 212.

Our staff are there to talk to you about these issues and help you through these times.

It’s okay to say you’re not okay.
