During this time of unprecedented challenges due to the Coronavirus we have plans in place to ensure the ongoing delivery of essential services, including immunisation.

It is important for families to continue their child’s immunisation schedule. 

Book online: Immunisation Sessions

Attending our sessions

  • All sessions require a booking to attend.
  • Due to social distancing requirements please do not arrive any more than 5 minutes prior to your confirmed booking time.
  • For health and safety, we are asking that ONLY 1 adult per child attends the immunisation session. Please do not bring extended family/carers to these sessions. If you have more than one child to be immunised please book appointments ideally one after the other.

  • you or your child and/or any member of your family has COVID symptoms or has had a COVID test and awaiting results

Face masks

  • You’ll notice that our Immunisation Nurses will be wearing protective items like masks, plastic aprons and eye protectors. This is to protect staff and our community from the spread of the virus.
  • All clients over the age of 12 years of age attending our sessions are required to wear a face mask.
  • Infants and children under the age of 12 years are not required to wear a face mask.
  • Please ONLY attend the immunisation session if you are able to wear a face mask as required.

Secondary School Immunisation Program

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has advised that delivery of the secondary school immunisation program is an essential medical service and your child should still receive the required vaccines on time.
