Immunisations

All of our clinics provide immunisations to all of our enrolled patients.

Many lethal diseases, including most recently meningococcal B meningitis, have declined due to immunisation.

All babies are routinely immunised for
tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B and haemophilus. Having ensured beforehand that the child is not ill or suffering from allergies, injections are normally given by specially qualified nurses or doctors.

Each child has his or her own record of immunisation at the clinic and with the National Immunisation Register (NIR). The NIR is updated with each immunisation received by the child. The parents are advised by our staff if the child has missed any injection.

Pneumococcal vaccine (for some patients) and human papilloma virus (HPV), which can lead to cervical cancer, are free and the influenza vaccine is provided free for many groups.

Patients can also request chicken pox, TB and travel vaccines but since these carry no government subsidy, you will have to pay for them.

Immunisations – Are all those vaccines necessary?

Shots can prevent some fatal diseases. Doctors suggest that all healthy children be given shots. Take a look at our shot guide to see if your child is up to date with shots.
