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

These include childhood vaccines, that are funded for anyone up to 20 years of age.

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.
