North East Health Wangaratta and Albury Wodonga Health are advising the community of their COVID-19 vaccination and testing clinic hours over the holiday period to ensure the local community and visitors can stay COVID-safe.
NHW acting chief executive Robyn Gillis said it had originally planned to scale back testing and vaccination, but the situation had changed.
"With strong demand expected our Screening Clinic will remain open every day throughout the Christmas/New Year period," she said.
"With case numbers rising nationally, we are encouraging everyone who is eligible to come forward and get their third dose."
