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

  • work places

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.
