Why should you get immunised?

Fighting against harmful diseases has been made much easier thanks to the advances of vaccines.

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way to protect our society from diseases that cause serious health issues, and even fatalities. The more people who are vaccinated, the less opportunity diseases have to spread.

Protecting yourself from the flu

You can purchase a flu vaccine from our immunisation team.

Protect yourself and your family by getting an influenza vaccination – the more people that have the vaccine, the less opportunity there is for influenza to spread.

The flu vaccination is available for purchase, with cash and EFTPOS facilities available.

For further information, contact the immunisation team on 0421 619 848.

Absent Students

If students have returned a signed consent form to school, and they are absent on the day of immunisation, we send a follow-up letter to parent/guardian with alternative clinic dates and times. Please bring the student's Medicare card to your preferred session time.

We go out to businesses and workplaces

From March to December each year, arrangements can be made for our immunisation nurses to attend your workplace or business to provide vaccinations for a scheduled fee.
