COVID-19 update

cohealth continues to play a critical role in providing essential services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Victorian Department of Health, cohealth’s Leadership Network and Infection Control Committee are working together to:

  • provide COVID-19 vaccinations
  • test people for COVID-19
  • coordinate an evidence-based approach, and
  • rapidly respond to all potential scenarios that pose a risk to public health

Vaccinations are being provided to priority groups based on expert medical advice. Find out how to get vaccinated at cohealth.

All incoming clients are screened and anyone with symptoms is supported to get tested. Find out how to get tested for COVID-19 at cohealth.
