Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of providing protection for your child against a range of diseases including tetanus, whooping cough, measles and Hepatitis B. The benefits of vaccinations outweigh any risks of vaccinations, which are usually mild and self limiting such as mild fever following vaccination.
Our registered practice nurse, Chelsea, is skilled at childhood vaccinations, and patients are able to book in directly to our Practice Nurse for an immunisation consultation on Ph:99555566. Alternatively, you can book in with one of our doctors through our online booking system to discuss any concerns you have with your child or undergo a developmental screen prior to our Nurse giving your child’s vaccinations.
Opportunistic assessment of developmental milestones is undertaken at the time of childhood vaccination at 2,4,6,12 and 18 months and at 4 years.
Vaccinations for Human Papilloma Virus, whooping cough and tetanus are introduced into the high school program. Hepatitis B and Chicken Pox catch up vaccinations can also be given at this time.
