COVID-19 update

cohealth is proud to have played a critical role in providing essential services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. From the start of the pandemic, cohealth worked together with the Victorian Department of Health to: 

  • provide vaccinations at both our fixed sites and pop-up clinics across Victoria 
  • test people for COVID-19 
  • provide a community-led health and social response at high-rises and other high-risk accommodation settings  
  • provide health information in language to communities. 

As of 30 June 2022, there have been changes to our COVID-19 services
