Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way to protect your family from harmful diseases this holiday season and into 2020. Visit your doctor for general health and vaccination advice.
Immunisation not only protects you and your family but also others in your community, by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.
Children starting school in 2020 must have up-to-date immunisations to enrol.
These vaccinations help protect children from highly infectious and severe diseases including whooping cough and measles.
If you’re travelling overseas during the school holidays, you may need vaccinations or medication – both for general health protection and for region-specific diseases.
If you’re travelling to the Northern Hemisphere, you may even need a flu shot.
