What do I need to do before I get tested for COVID-19?

Please call ahead using the details on the map or table, before visiting a testing site, unless you are visiting a drive-through testing site or one of the Monash Health walk-in clinics.

Before you get tested for COVID-19, you can save time at the testing site by using the Testing registration form. This is optional.

Please note that the form is not available at all testing sites. Check the map or table below to see if the form is available at your preferred testing site.

For all drive-through locations, you must be in a vehicle to be tested. You cannot walk in or ride a bicycle through a drive-through testing site.

If there are no clinics listed near you, contact your doctor, local community health service or local hospital for assistance. Phone ahead to discuss your symptoms before visiting in person.

Register before your COVID-19 test

To speed up information collection, you can now use Testing registration to pre fill in an online form before your COVID-19 test. This is optional.

Please note that the form is not available at all testing sites. Check the map or table below to see if the form is available at your preferred testing site.

If you choose to fill in the form, you will get a unique registration number, which can be used by authorised staff at the testing site to access your information securely. This will improve the testing experience.

The details you provide will be available when you arrive at any COVID-19 testing site that uses the Testing registration form for 90 days. Check whether the testing site uses the form on the map or table.

Registration is available to anyone who is 18 years or older and has an Australian mobile phone number. Check whether the testing site uses Testing registration on the map or table.

Visit the Testing registration page to fill in the online form.

Where can I get children tested?

Children can be tested for COVID-19 at hospital respiratory clinics and GP respiratory clinics.

St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne only tests children 12 years of age and older. Children of all ages can be tested at other 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 and table.

Children aged five years and over can be tested for COVID-19 at a shopping centre drive-through testing location or one of the other testing sites across Victoria (details of locations are in the map and table).

Due to constraints in testing through a car window, children aged under 5 years will not be able to be tested at certain drive-through locations. To determine which drive-through site is not able to test children under 5 years old, please refer to the map and table.

Please note - all Monash Health sites (including drive-throughs) offer testing for children of all ages.
