BENDIGO will be home to one of nine COVID-19 vaccination hubs in Victoria.
Bendigo Health confirmed on Thursday that it would operate one of the hubs.
The facility will be aligned with the federal hubs for delivery of the Pfizer vaccine.
A Bendigo Health spokesperson said planning was currently underway for the hub.
No detail was provided about when the hub was likely to open.
The federal government has released plans to roll out vaccinations across Australia, with the first stage aimed at frontline health care workers, aged and disability care staff and residents, and quarantine and border workers.
The second stage will target people over 70, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, younger adults with underlying medical conditions and critical and high risk workers.
Thirty to fifty hubs will be established in hospitals across the nation for delivery of the Pfizer vaccine to priority populations.
They will be a distribution hub for the priority groups.
Australia's Therapeutic Goods Association has provisionally approved the the Pfizer vaccine for people aged 16 and over, saying it met high safety, efficacy and quality standards.
It requires two doses, 21 days apart.
