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.
Attention Parents and Carers
Next Immunisation Clinic - Tuesday 11 and Tuesday 25 june 2019
New-born babies must be 6 weeks old (42 days) before receiving their first immunisation. If your child is due for immunisation please attend this clinic. No appointment is necessary.
If you have children with immunisation records from overseas or they require a catch-up schedule, please contact the Immunisation Coordinator prior to attending the clinic. If you need further information please contact the Immunisation Coordinator on 9952 8268 or email your enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org
Flu vaccine is available now!
Free flu shots for children aged 6 months to under 5 years.
Children between six months and five years old will be eligible for free flu influenza immunisations again this year, under the influenza vaccination program offered by the NSW Government. From April 2019 Influenza vaccine will be available at the City of Ryde Immunisation Clinic.
All NSW children aged from six months to under five years of age will be offered free influenza shots. Parents can access the free flu shot from their usual immunisation provider: their GP, Aboriginal Medical Service, community health centre or local council. For more details, click here.
Infants and young children are most likely to spread the flu and suffer complications – by immunising this age group those more vulnerable in the community will also be protected, including babies too young to receive a flu vaccine.
Children who have never had a flu vaccination will need two doses, one month apart. The vaccine will cover four strains of influenza virus, two A strains and two B strains, likely to be circulating this winter.
