Victoria active cases see overnight decline, new COVID infections rise
In the last 24 hours Victoria has recorded an additional 10,293 cases of coronavirus, bringing the state's active total to 62,173.
While this is a rise in new infections overnight with the state only registering 9597 yesterday, it is an even steeper decline in active cases.
Sadly, 12 people died overnight, while 376 are currently in hospital with the virus. Two people are on ventilators and 19 are in the ICU.
The number of booster vaccines administered continues to grow, with 66.7 per cent of eligible Victorians now triple jabbed.
94.4 per cent of Victorians aged 12 and over have received two doses of coronavirus vaccine.
In a push to continue the slowly climbing vaccination rates, the Department of Health informed Victorians on social media there would be an additional 60 pop-up vaccination clinics over the coming school holidays.
As long as they are accompanied by a guardian, children will be able to simply walk-in to the pop-ups and get their vaccine without booking ahead of time.
The department said eligible family members can also get their next dose at the same time.
You can also book at covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/booking.
The Bendigo Advertiser is currently looking into where these pop-ups will be located.
