Access in-language support

SECL’s bi-cultural workers speak Burmese, Nuer and Dari and provide in-language health education workshops, health messaging and vaccination support across the local government areas of Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia.

Our bi-cultural workers can help you, your friends or family members with:

  • Education about COVID-19 including information for parents of children aged 5-12 years who are eligible for vaccinations.
  • Information about COVID-19 vaccinations, testing and safety.
  • Assistance to organise your vaccinations including third doses which are available to everyone over the age of 16 years who have had their first two doses.
  • Assistance to access digital certificates and set up MyGov accounts
