Council conducts appointment-only immunisation sessions for the public in line with the National Immunisation Program. This is a free session available to a range of people including:

  • babies, infants and young children
  • secondary school students 
  • individuals under 20 who require catch-up immunisations
  • pregnant women
  • medically at risk and other vulnerable people.

If you are not eligible for a free vaccination through the National Immunisation Program, Council provides some vaccines at a cost. Learn about vaccines available for purchase(PDF, 173KB).

Download immunisation - frequently asked questions(PDF, 162KB) for more information.

Before coming to a session, it's important to know:

  • Please bring your child's health record (green book) and any documented evidence of previous vaccinations given.
  • When being immunised please wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing to the session.
  • The nurse will discuss any possible reactions and address any concerns you have before you are administered any vaccines.
  • After immunisation, you and your child will need to stay close to the venue, in case you have a reaction to the vaccine (this is very rare). Find more information(PDF, 237KB) on vaccine side effects.

If further vaccinations are required, the next appointment will be booked at the session.

All vaccinations issued during our public sessions will be recorded on Council’s database and reported to the Australian Immunisation Register. This means all immunisation details will remain up-to-date and accessible throughout Australia. 

My Health Record is also a convenient way that you can track all immunisation records. It is a secure online summary of health information that you can choose to share with your healthcare providers.

Catch-up immunisation

Free catch-up vaccinations are available for people under the age of 20, refugees and people seeking asylum.

Catch-up immunisations may be required for a number of reasons, including:

  • To meet Australian vaccination requirements.
  • Your child was overseas or on holiday and missed the vaccinations that were due.
  • Your family recently migrated to Australia.
  • Your child had a medical condition preventing immunisation when immunisations were due.
  • You have been contacted by Council, Centrelink or the Australian Immunisation Register to let you know your child is not up to date.

If you or your child requires catch up information, please contact Council’s immunisation service on:

Call:    9356 6745

Already up to date with your vaccinations? You can also help keep our community healthy by telling your friends and family about this service.

For further information in English or other languages, please visit the Victorian Government's Health Translations website.

No Jab No Play

If your child is attending childcare or kindergarten, you will need to provide proof that your child is up-to-date with their immunisations.

Your childcare service provider will ask you for an Immunisation History Statement for your child when you enrol, and again six to seven months later. If you do not provide an Immunisation History Statement, your child may not be able to attend childcare or kindergarten.

No Jab No Pay

Your Commonwealth Family Tax Benefit Part A or the Childcare Rebate may be reduced if:

  • Your child has not received all immunisations required for their age; or
  • Your child’s immunisations are not correctly recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register.

If your child requires immunisations, you should contact us or your GP to arrange them as soon as possible. 

If you believe your child’s details on the Australian Immunisation Register are incorrect, you can contact your immunisation service provider.
