Immunisation

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Public Health Unit provides general advice and information on adult and childhood immunisation to health care providers and members of the public. Staff also follow up reports of adverse reactions to vaccinations.

The Immunisation Team conducts the Adolescent School Vaccination Program which provides immunisations to school students for Diphtheria Tetanus Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Varicella (Chickenpox),  and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

Their website includes information for the general public as well as for immunisation providers, including The Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th edition 2013, and the revised National Immunisation Program.
