At Disability Sport & Recreation we work with young people with disability, through our DSR kids program, to help them get active on their own terms. We know just how important it is for young people to play, be active and connect face-to-face. Now that vaccine bookings are available for children aged 5-11, we can create a safe environment for kids to just be kids.



Bookings for children aged 5-11 to receive the Pfizer vaccine are now open. Getting kids vaccinated will help:


  • keep schools open, so kids can have more face-to-face learning and playtime with their friends

  • reduce the spread of COVID-19

  • protect kids from getting sick from COVID-19.


Where to book?


You can book at your local GP or pharmacy: https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/booking

Vaccination centre bookings can also be made online for children using a unique email address that has not been used before in the online booking system. For example, a new or alternative email address used by the child or parent/guardian. Visit https://portal.cvms.vic.gov.au/
