Immunisation

What is Immunisation?

There are quite a number of infectious diseases which can be prevented by immunisation. Some of the more frequently immunised against are diphtheria, tetanus, influenza, rubella, hepatitis B, meningococcal disease and pneumococcal disease. All of these diseases can cause serious complications and sometimes death.

Where do I go to be immunised against these diseases?

Many of these vaccines are provided free-of-charge and are available from your General Practitioner, Council immunisation clinic or other immunisation provider. Children can also be immunised at school if your Council runs a school immunisation program. Contact the Environmental Health Officer at your Council for advice.

If travelling overseas to countries where certain diseases are a problem, talk to your own doctor or one of the travel medicine centres listed in the telephone book.

For information on immunisation sessions near you, please call your local Council health section, General Practitioner, or immunisation provider.

The National Health and Medical Research Council publishes a schedule of recommended immunisations for children and adults.
