Immunisation is a simple, safe, and effective way to protect children against certain diseases. The serious health risks of these diseases are far greater than the very small risks of immunization.
Immunisation protects children (and adults) against harmful infections before they encounter them in the community. Everyday Immunisation saves lives and makes it possible for Australian to live free from illness and disability caused by many vaccine-preventable diseases.
The vaccines listed in the National Immunisations Program (NIP) schedule are provided free by the (federal) government. All of our registered nurses are accredited Nurse Immunisers & can assist families co ordinated catch-up vaccination schedules. Catch-up vaccination aims to provide optimal protection against disease as quickly as possible by completing a person’s recommended vaccination schedule in the shortest but most effective time frame.
Catch-up vaccination is funded through the government’s NIP for anyone under the age of 20 years old.
