Catch Up Immunisations
Children aged up to 19 years old are eligible for FREE catch-up vaccines through their GP. Children born overseas or have missed several scheduled vaccinations will require an in depth catch up schedule to be created, there is a charge for creating this schedule and registering vaccinations given overseas with the Australian Immunisation Register.
