Campaspe Shire Council runs an immunisation program for the local community, providing information and education as well as vaccinations to:

  • babies
  • schools
  • work places
  • adults.

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting children and adults against certain diseases.

Many vaccinations are free, thanks to government funding. Others are not. For information on the current National Immunisation Program, visit the Department of Health Talking about Immunisation website and the Better Health immunisation website.

Immunisations, to pay for

Some immunisations are not free and need to be paid for prior to attending an immunisation session. Payment can be made at any council customer service centre, or over the phone. Please bring your receipt to the session.
