Immunisation – Childhood & Adult

Immunisation – Childhood & Adult

All baby and childhood vaccinations are available at the practice and all children should be immunised against tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, poliomyelitis, Meningococcal Type C, Haemophilus Influenza Type B, Measles, Mumps and Rubella and Hepatitis B. These vaccinations are a requirement for school entry in Victoria. Hepatitis A and Chickenpox vaccines are also available.

Adult immunisations and boosters are available including Hepatitis A and B, pneumococcal and influenza vaccines.

An annual Influenza vaccination is strongly recommended for all people over 65 years of age or anyone with a chronic illness such as heart or lung disease including asthma or bronchitis or diabetes. (Influenza vaccine is supplied free by the Government for patients 65 years and older, as is pneumococcal vaccine).

Immunisations are available at the following times. To ensure your waiting time is kept to a minimum, a booking is required:

Monday 9:00am – 11:30am and 2:00pm – 4:30pm

Tuesday 9:00am – 11:30am and 2:00pm – 4:30pm

It is recommended that all patients who have been immunised wait on the clinic premises for 15 minutes observation.

If you present to the clinic for vaccination only, the visit will be either bulk billed or billed at the rebate amount.
This does not apply to employer/employee arrangements.
There is a charge for some vaccinations.

It is required to phone and book an appointment for immunisations and vaccines.

We hold specific clinics for Influenza vaccines during the months of February and March.   Clinic dates and times will be advertised in The Gippsland Times in the Public Notice section.
