When you work together you can achieve great things.

Staff from Bendigo Community Health Services and Bendigo Health teamed up with the Karen Culture and Social support foundation Inc. to create history at the weekend - Bendigo's first COVID-19 vaccine clinic for the Karen community.

Our ongoing consultation with the Karen community to raise awareness around the vaccine showed a need for a special clinic.

Bendigo Health stepped in to provide staff to deliver the vaccines and Ashin Moonieinda offered the temple as a site.

That's team work!

It was a fantastic to see everyone working together to support the Karen community.

That's what community spirit is all about.

Thank you to everyone who played a role in this clinic.
