  • Cancer Council of Victoria have just released a memo stating they have worked hard to get approval for all cancer patients to get priority vaccination with Pzifer. If you would like to get your vaccination please consult with your doctors first and then ring the Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398. This is available for all Victorian cancer patients and for priority bookings so you dont have to wait for Pzifer vaccinations.

    Any further questions or concerns you can ring the Helpline on 1300 660 334 Monday to Friday business hour.
