Why immunise?
Immunisation is an accepted way to protect your child and the community in general from the serious complications of preventable disease.
Immunisations are given as per the National Health and Medical Research Council Schedule (NHMRC).

Is it Safe?
Sometimes children may have a mild reaction to the vaccine, however severe reactions are very uncommon. The risk associated with diseases is far greater. If reactions are severe and persistent, or if you are worried about your child, contact your local doctor or Health Direct free call (mobile fee may apply) 1800 022 222
