Kid Getting Vaccinated

Immunisations

We offer a wide range of vaccinations and many of these are funded including all childhood immunisations.

Childhood Immunisations

It's important to keep your child immunised against diseases like measles, mumps and rubella. Children should have their routine immunisations at 6 weeks, 3 months, 5 months, 15 months and 5 years.

Check out the National Immunsation Schedule for children.

Flu Vaccines

During the flu season, we offer influenza vaccinations. You may be eligible for a funded flu vaccine if you are pregnant, over 65 or have certain long term conditions eg COPD, Asthma

HPV Vaccines

To protect against HPV, which can lead to cervical cancer, funded vaccines are available to males and females aged between 9 - to 26 years old. Males are vaccinated too to protect against transmission of the virus during sex.

Meningitis

We recommend the meningococcal vaccine for all children aged 11-18 years old to protect against Meningitis, a serious but uncommon brain infection. Students living in student accommodation may also be at higher risk.

Shingles

The Shingles vaccine called Vaccine Zostavax is funded for people who are 65 years old. Shingles is a painful rash caused by the varicella-zoster virus and is more common in older adults.
