Child Immunisations - Make a booking with your GP for a check for your baby at 6 weeks, which includes his/her first immunisation. Otherwise book with Practice Nurse directly for all other childhood immunisations.
School Immunisation Program – if this is missed during the school program we can administer the necessary vaccination in our clinic.
Please note not all adult vaccines are funded. Some incur a cost and are only free to particular age groups or medical conditions.
Immunisation is still relevant in adulthood as on-going protection is required for preventable diseases. Even if vaccinations were given in childhood, adults may need booster doses to maintain immunity. There are a range of adult vaccines available at our practice.
If you are planning to become pregnant it is highly recommended to check which vaccinations you may need before you become pregnant. Whooping Cough vaccination is strongly recommended for all expecting parents and other adults such as grandparents who will be in close contact with a new baby. Newborns are at risk of serious complications if they contract whooping cough.
Pregnant women can have a free whooping cough vaccine in their third trimester. This provides optimal protection for new babies. The Flu/Influenza vaccine can also be given.
