Free immunisation service
We provide a free adult and infant immunisation service according to the National Immunisation Program (NIP). Immunisation sessions are held monthly at 7 locations in Cardinia Shire.
Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting children and adults against many diseases. The risks associated with these diseases are greater than the very small risks associated with immunisation.
You do not need to book infant immunisation sessions.
The Victorian Government has a schedule of immunisations provided free under the NIP.
If your child’s immunisations are not up to date (according to the NIP), your GP can develop a catch-up program with you. Contact us if you have questiions about a catch-up schedule.
Ensure you have a catch-up program before you attend an infant immunisation session. Immunisation catch up programs take time to develop and so we cannot develop a program with you during an infant immunisation session.
Immunisation status certificate
Under No Jab, No Play laws, all children enrolling at an early childhood education facility or care service must present an immunisation status certificate. The certificate or statement is available from the Australia Immunisations Register or will be mailed to you after your child receives their final immunisation boosters at 4 years.
Secondary school immunisations
We visit secondary schools 3 times a year to immunise Year 7 students. Funded vaccines are provided according to the Victorian immunisation schedule. Parents and guardians must return a completed immunisation consent card to their child’s school, regardless of yes or no consent.
If your child misses a school immunisation session, contact us for information on how to catch-up.
