Immunisation

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

Access to the free NIP vaccines requires a person to hold or be eligible for a Medicare Card. 

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

  • adolescents
  • pregnant women
  • adults and seniors
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People
  • people with certain medical conditions that puts them at greater risk of certain disease.

See immunisation eligibility criteria for further information.

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.

Shingrix (Shingles vaccine) is currently unavailable due to Victoria's supply being exhausted.  Supply is expected to resume in late May or June.

Updates will be made here when it again becomes available.
