Immunisation Service

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases that can cause serious health problems in the community. The more people who are vaccinated, the fewer opportunities a disease has to spread.

We provide routine childhood vaccinations against diseases, including the common flu vaccine. 

FREE vaccinations are available if they are listed in the National Immunisation Programs SA Schedule(52 kb)

Costs do apply to those that do not fall within this schedule: Immunisation Vaccine Price List 2017(281 kb)

Please note we do not offer travel vaccinations.

School Immunisation Program

Protection produced by some vaccines will decline over time and booster doses may be needed to ensure high levels of protection are maintained (for example diptheria, whooping cough and tetanus). A booster dose given in high school will provide protection over a longer period of time. Also vaccines such as the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine are more effective if delivered at a specific age.

Vaccines delivered through the school program are made available at no cost under the National Immunisation Program. Fully trained and qualified vaccination teams visit all high schools in South Australia to deliver the program.

Eligibility

To be eligible to receive free vaccines under the School Immunisation Program, your child must be enrolled in Year 8. Home-schooled children are also eligible to receive the recommended vaccinations free.
