Immunisation services

We offer free vaccinations to help reduce the spread of infectious diseases in our community.

Babies, children, some adults and special risk groups receive some vaccines for free.

Find out more about who is eligible on the VicHealth site.

Protect yourself this flu season

We're running public flu shot sessions from April to August.

Anyone under age 5 is welcome to free immunisations. Limited stock is available for age 5 and up for $25 when attending with a child.

For people over 65, contact your GP as we cannot administer the flu vaccine. 

By getting your flu vaccine, you’re not only protecting yourself, you're also protecting young babies less than 6 months old and people who are medically at risk.

Meningococcal B (Bexsero)

From 1 July 2020, Meningococcal B vaccine is available for $130 at all of our public immunisation sessions for babies from 6 weeks of age. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children under 2 are funded to receive this vaccine.

Children under 2 should have paracetamol 30 minutes before receiving any dose (or as soon as possible after) due to the high risk of fever.

Catch-up vaccinations

Catching-up vaccinations can be complicated: rather than dropping in to a public immunisation session, please visit a Customer Service Centre to discuss your vaccination records and work out a program.
