Thursday, 01 April 2021

The Barwon South West COVID-19 vaccination program outreach team collaborated with Colac Area Health to vaccinate aged care residents at Corangamarah and frontline healthcare workers recently.

Eighty two-year-old Corangamarah resident Barbara Howard was the first person to be vaccinated at Colac Area Health.

"I think it is very important to be brave and have the vaccination," she explained.

"I want to set an example to my five granddaughters, two grandsons and our local community."
