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.

EOI – Redesign of Bendigo Community Health Services workplace health program

Bendigo Community Health Services has offered a Workplace Health program for 15 years.

It’s about helping businesses and employees in our community to pursue a healthy lifestyle and protect them in times of need such as flu season.

We have completed a review of the program in line with our new Strategic Directions 2019-2024 with a focus on demand, impact and resourcing.

It’s time to redesign the program.

We are seeking some independent advice from a qualified consultancy agency or individual to make sure our new Workplace Health program meets the needs of the community and is sustainable to continue supporting businesses and employees well into the future.

The consultant will review the present program and future opportunities and provide a report with recommendations to help with the redevelopment and redesign of our Workplace Health Program.

Does that sound like something your organisation can help us with?

Expressions of interest close at 4pm on September 4, 2020.

Please direct any questions to our Director of Primary Health Care Services Graem Kelly by email on or calling (03) 5406 1479.

The EOI documents are available at or you can learn more by clicking on this link to go to our website:

Are your staff or workmates protected against the flu this year?

Bendigo Community Health Services nurses have been out and about safely delivering more flu shots in businesses across Greater Bendigo keen to protect their staff this Winter.

Among recent stops were long-term supporters Poyser Motor Group and Metroid Electrical Engineering.

With the symptoms of flu and Coronavirus very similar, it’s important we get as many people vaccinated as possible this year.

We’ve got lots of stock so if you’d like us to visit your workplace just email or call 5406 1477 and speak to our workplace health co-ordinator Brooke.

We’ve also got plenty of general vaccines if you need one to visit a loved one or friend in aged care or just want to protect yourself and your family. Call our Client Services team on 5406 1200 if you still need a flu shot.
