A vaccination blitz is underway in Victoria, with aged care and disability workers now a top priority.

From tomorrow until Sunday, commonwealth managed private aged care homes and the residential disability sector will be given priority access to walk-in vaccination hubs around Victoria when they present evidence of their employment.

The Royal Exhibition Building, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Sandown Racecourse, the Melbourne Showgrounds, and the former Ford factory in Geelong are among those workers can get a walk-in vaccination.

In regional Victoria, the Bendigo community clinic, Ballarat Mercure Hotel and Convention Centre and the Shepparton Showgrounds will be open to walk-ins for eligible employees.
