COVID CORRECTIONS VIDEO SERIES

Are you still unsure about vaccinations and about COVID-19 in general?

Wimmera Health Care Group is releasing a short series of videos to help provide you with the answers to the questions you are commonly asking.

The series features Dr Rob Grenfell, head of CSIRO’s Health and Biosecurity department, a role he has held for the past six years. Dr Grenfell was a GP in Horsham for many years and now works as a public health physician. He’s had a longstanding interest in pandemics and he’s keen to make sure people have a greater understanding of the COVID story.

We encourage anyone who has been hesitating to get vaccinated to take this opportunity to get an expert response to their frequently asked questions about how the vaccine might affect their health, so they can make an informed decision.

Video 1 – 1min 55sec - Dr Grenfell talks about the risks in winter of Covid and the flu.
