Immunisation

Council has been providing an immunisation service to our local community for over 50 years. This service is available for all children from newborn to five years of age regardless of place of residence. You do not need a Medicare card to attend our service.  The service:

  • Promotes the Immunise Australia Program and administers childhood vaccines according to the NSW Immunisation Schedule
  • Is staffed by fully accredited Immunisation Nurses who provide an efficient, caring and professional service
  • Provides current information on new vaccines and immunisation schedules, health and well-being for early childhood and other community information.
