Local Council immunisation clinics

Some local city councils provide free vaccinations at community immunisation clinics to eligible residents. Some clinics may have the vaccine available for purchase. Check with your local council for details. You do not need to book an appointment for a Council clinic, but you should bring your immunisation records and/or your child’s red book.
