Immunisation from an early age is strongly recommended for all Australian children. Having your child immunised helps protect them against the most serious childhood infections, some of which may be life-threatening.
Routine childhood immunisations protect your child against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis) polio, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal C disease, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), rotavirus, chickenpox, measles, mumps and rubella (German measles).
To make sure your child has the best protection against the above diseases, please visit your Childhood Immunisation Provider.
Change to service
As of 31 December 2014, AlburyCity will no longer be providing an immunisation service.
To ensure your child has the best protection against the above diseases, please visit your childhood immunisation provider.
