Talking about Vaccinations

An important part of staying healthy. 

Vaccinations are an important part of remaining healthy, whether people are travelling overseas or are just living in WA. Our doctors and our nurse will try to make your vaccination experience as pleasant as possible. We are aware that everyone responds differently to injections and so will seek to cater on an individual basis as best we can for all who are having vaccinations.

We provide all routine childhood immunisations.

It is strongly recommended that the following groups are immunised because they are at higher risk of serious complications from flu and under the Australian Government’s National Immunisation Program the following groups can receive a free flu vaccine: 

•  pregnant women
•  children aged 6 months to less than 5 years
•  people 65 years and older
•  Aboriginal Australians 15 years and older
•  people 6 months and older with medical conditions that put them at risk of severe flu, including: 

•  heart disease
•  kidney disease
•  chronic respiratory conditions
•  chronic illnesses that required regular medical attention or hospitalisation in the previous year
•  chronic neurological conditions
•  impaired immunity
•  Children aged 6 months to 10 years receiving long-term aspirin therapy. 

We also strongly recommended young and/or fit adults continue to receive flu vaccines – as studies show adults who are vaccinated are 50% less likely to report a sick day. The cost of the vaccine will incur a fee.

Be informed. Be prepared.
