- We provide a free public immunisation service for adults and infants. Immunisations we offer as part of this service are the government-funded vaccines that are part of the National Immunisation Program.
- Immunisation sessions are held monthly at various locations in Cardinia Shire. You can view the schedule here
- We also provide immunisations in secondary schools
- Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting children and adults against many diseases. The risks of contracting these diseases are greater than the very small risks associated with immunisation.

Immunisation session dates and times
Vaccines provided at each age
In Victoria, a routine vaccine schedule is provided free of charge to:
- adults at increased risk of vaccine-preventable disease.
These vaccines are funded via the National Immunisation Program and the Victorian-funded immunisation program.

What to do if immunisations are not up to date
- If your child’s immunisations are not up to date (according to the immunisation schedule), contact your GP, who will help you work out a catch-up program. You can also contact us if you have questions about a catch-up schedule.
- Please make sure you have a catch-up program in place before you attend one of our immunisation sessions.
How to show that your child's had their immunisations
- All children enrolling at an early childhood education facility or care service must have an immunisation status certificate. This shows all the vaccinations your child has received. More info: No Jab, No Play
- This certificate will be mailed to you after your child gets their final immunisation boosters at 4 years.
- You can also get your immunisation history statement straight away using either:
You can also call the Australian Immunisation Register and ask them to send your immunisation history statement to you.
Secondary school immunisations
- We visit secondary schools twice a year to immunise Year 7 students, and once a year for Year 10 students.
- Funded vaccines are provided in line with the Victorian immunisation schedule.
- Parents and guardians must return a completed immunisation consent card to their child’s school, whether or not they give consent.
- If your child misses a school immunisation session, contact us for information on how to catch up.
