Community immunisation sessions advice

We provide free vaccinations for children in Glen Eira as part of the National Immunisation Program Schedule.

Find an immunisation session

To ensure public safety and social distancing, all Council community immunisation sessions will be conducted at Glen Eira Town Hall (corner Glen Eira and Hawthorn Roads, Caulfield), McKinnon Public Hall (118 McKinnon Road, McKinnon), Bentleigh McKinnon Youth Centre (1–5 Higgins Road, Bentleigh) and Connect Health (2A Gardeners Road, Bentleigh East).

Influenza vaccine

The funded influenza vaccine is available for the following age groups at Council’s immunisation sessions:

  • over six months and under 5 years (over 5 years need to go to their GP)
  • over 65 years.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only one parent with one child is allowed at the immunisation sessions. Mask must be worn before entering the immunisation session.

From October our immunisation sessions will be moving to an appointment-based system. Bookings are available online.

Prepare for your visit

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

Special four-year-old immunisation

Council runs the special 4 years old session and the children getting immunised gets 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. We kindly ask that only one parent per child attend the session.
