Immunisations and Vaccinations

Manage your long-term health

Immunisations and Vaccinations

Vaccination is a cornerstone of preventative health.  We provide all childhood and government schedule vaccines to children, adults and the elderly.  We can also advise and offer protection against others such as meningococcal, the flu and shingles.  We carry most travel vaccinations and can advise and administer all necessary vaccinations before undertaking overseas travel.

Childhood immunization

We provide all Government schedule routine immunisations through our team of nurses and GPs.. Our nurses have undergone additional skills in immunization and can advise if any catchup or extra immunisations are required.  Government immunisations provided through our nurses clinic are at no cost to patients.

See link to current schedule

Current childhood immunisations are provided at 6weeks, 4months, 6months, 12 months, 18months, 3.5years and year 7.

Some medical conditions often require additional vaccinations (premature babies, patients without spleen for example), the government will also intermittnatly change and run extra vaccination programs.
