Where can I get children tested?
Children of all ages can be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) at hospital respiratory clinics and GP respiratory clinics. In some cases, parents/carers may be referred to a hospital emergency department by the hospital respiratory clinic. Your local doctor may also be providing testing for children, call them to find out.
Hospital testing clinics and GP respiratory clinics are listed in the map above.
Children aged five years and over can be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) at a shopping centre drive-through testing location or one of the other testing sites across Victoria (details of locations are above).
Due to the constraints of testing through a car window, children aged under five years will not be able to be tested at shopping centre drive-through locations, as well as Chadstone Golfers Drive, Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, Roxburgh Park, Bunnings Caroline Springs, Bunnings West Footscray, Melbourne Airport and Keysborough.
Please note - all Monash Health sites (including drive-throughs) offer testing for children of all ages.
