The past couple of years have been challenging for health services everywhere.
Here in East Gippsland, our health care workers have done a remarkable job in incredibly trying circumstances.
Remember, COVID came hot on the heels of the devastating 2019/2020 bushfires, and so the staff at Orbost Regional Health and our colleagues and partners in Bairnsdale, Omeo and Mallacoota have been working under a state of high alert and tremendous pressure for more than two years now.
But still, they continue to provide our community with essential health care services, including COVID testing and vaccination.
If you need a COVID test or vaccination, here’s the info you need.
