Special four-year-old immunisation

We run a special four-year-old session every second month and the children getting immunised get a free show bag.

These vaccinations are recommended to be given to children the month they turn four. Our four-year-old immunisation sessions are by appointment only. Children aged between six months and under five years can also be immunised at the four-year-old session. We kindly ask that only one parent per child attend the session.

Prepare for your visit

Bookings are required. You should bring your child’s health book or immunisation records, and a Medicare card (if you have one).

2022 Influenza vaccination 

Vaccination against influenza (flu) is important this year. Annual vaccination is our best defence against flu virus and its complications.

Over the COVID-19 period there has been lower exposure to influenza virus and lower levels of influenza vaccine coverage compared to previous years. With borders reopening a possible resurgence of influenza can occur in 2022.

Flu and COVID-19 vaccination

ATAGI (Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation) has advised that influenza vaccines can be co-administered (on the same day) with a COVID-19 vaccine. Co-administration with COVID-19 booster vaccines could be a prompt for influenza vaccination.

Timing of vaccination

The highest level of protection occurs in the first 3 to 4 months following vaccination. Annual vaccination should ideally occur before the onset of each influenza season. This is usually from June to September in most parts of Australia but may be atypical this year. Vaccinating from April provides protection before the peak season.

2022 Flu vaccination availability

Annual Free flu vaccines under the National Immunisation Program (NIP) for adults aged 65 years and over are available now at the Council’s Community Immunisation sessions.

Influenza vaccination for children

The influenza vaccine for children over 6 months of age to under 5 years is available during Council’s community sessions.
