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.

You can get your immunisation history statement using either
- Your Medicare online account through myGov
- Medicare mobile app.
You can also call the Australian Immunisation Register (1800 653 809) and ask them to send your immunisation history statement to you. It can take up to 14 days to arrive in the post.
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 EFTPOS facilities available.

New arrivals and refugees
City of Playford is one of only two councils that deliver immunisations for newly arrived refugees.
New arrivals to Australia may not be fully immunised in line with the National Immunisation Program, which sets out vaccines from birth to adolescence. This places new arrivals and the community at risk of some vaccine preventable diseases.
The new arrivals program is available at both Playford clinics.
Currently-Funded Immunisation Programs
Vaccines through the school program are free of charge under the National Immunisation Program. Council’s fully trained and qualified vaccination team visits all high schools within the City of Playford to deliver the program.
Your child must be enrolled in Year 7, 8 and 10 to receive the free vaccines under the program – home-schooled children are also eligible to receive the vaccinations.
Vaccines for 2023
Year 7, 8 and 10:
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV) (Gardasil) vaccine
- Diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine.
Year 10 only:
- Meningococcal ACWY vaccine
- Meningococcal B vaccine
If a parent/guardian has provided digital consent for their child and they were absent on the day of immunisation, a email will be sent providing details of alternative clinic dates and times.
We go out to businesses and workplaces
From April 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.
