Are you a senior Victorian considering whether to have a COVID booster, or know someone who is?

Libraries are collaborating with the Health Issues Centre to support a free online forum on COVID booster shots for seniors on 5 May 2022. The online forum will:

  • provide participants with useful, reliable information on COVID vaccine booster shots
  • feature presentations by trusted experts, including Dr Catherine Bennett, Chair in Epidemiology at Deakin University
  • provide participants with the opportunity to ask the experts questions about boosters

People can register here to attend online.
