Immunisation

The City of Port Phillip offers a comprehensive community immunisation program for children, secondary school students and adults.

Immunisation

The City of Port Phillip provide free vaccines under the National Immunisation Program if you meet the immunisation eligibility criteria.

We also provide some fee for service vaccines that are not funded. Payment for these vaccines can be made at the sessions with Eftpos only. See below Fee for Service Immunisations.

School Vaccination Catch Up Program

The Victorian Government has requested Council’s offer ALL Secondary School students the opportunity to catch up on vaccines they may have missed in the previous years.

Secondary School students are offered the following vaccines:

  • Year 7 – HPV (Gardasil 9) – 2 doses 6 months apart
  • Year 7 – DTP (Boostrix/Adacel) – booster dose
  • Year 10 – Meningococcal ACWY (Nimenrix) – 1 dose

Council's Immunisation departments will be visiting secondary schools this year to offer these vaccines.  All year levels will be offered the vaccines in the catch-up program.

If your child has missed being vaccinated at school, please book an appointment below. If you wish to discuss your child's immunisation history, you may contact council’s Immunisation Service at schoolimmunisation@portphillip.vic.gov.au
