See the Better Health website for further information about influenza.

 

Child Immunisations

The Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 requires Council to coordinate an immunisation service to children living or being educated within the Council boundaries. 

Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of giving protection against a disease. After immunisation, your child is far less likely to catch the disease if there are cases in the community. The benefit of protection against disease far outweighs the very small risks of immunisation. Children are routinely immunised with the vaccines recommended in accordance with the National Immunisation Schedule.

Details about the ages for children to have their immunisation is in the immunisation section in your child’s Child Health Record Book or see the Victorian Immunisation schedule in Related Information.
