Baby and Child Immunisation

National Immunisation Program Schedule

The schedule of immunisations below is recommended and fully funded by the federal government for Australian children. This schedule applies from 1 July 2013, and you can check here for more detailed information and any updates.

It is important that children receive their vaccinations on time so that they get the maximum protection against diseases. The National Immunisation Program Schedule for adults and children outlines the recommended immunisations for children and when they are due.

Immunisations at Albany Clinic

All immunisations on this schedule are free for Australian children, and at Albany Clinic are given by our fully trained Registered Nurse Elizabeth Bettridge after a short consult or child health check with one of our doctors.

There is no cost involved for these services, and once your child has been immunised at Albany Clinic, our nurse will contact you to let you know when his or her next immunisation is due.

Note: Children under 12 are bulk billed for all visits at Albany Clinic.
