Immunisation services

All sessions are continuing to run, but bookings are now required. However, we are limiting the amount of clients entering the facility at any one time. Please be prepared for delays.

We are not currently approved to administer the COVID vaccination program. If this status changes, it will be widely promoted.

Face coverings must be worn. You will not be able to access this service if you are not wearing a covering. This is in line with the requirements of the Victorian Government. Children under 12 are not required to wear covering, but parents and guardians are.

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 aged 6 months up to age 5 is welcome to free immunisations. Limited stock is available for age 6 and up for $25 when attending with a child.

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

By getting your flu shot, you’re not only protecting yourself. You’re also protecting young babies less than 6 months old and people who have low immunity who can't receive the shot.

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.
