Immunisation Services

immunisation services

Council's Immunisation service provides free immunisations as part of the National Immunisation Program Schedule.

 

Covid safe immunisation:

Whilst our immunisation days remain the same, each family will be allocated 15-minute appointments to ensure the safety of all.

We ask that you arrive promptly to your appointment and do not enter the waiting area if the previous family has not yet vacated.

Please comply with all current recommended COVID safety and social distancing measures.

To book an appointment please call 1300 520 520.

We appreciate your patience and support as we work to ensure we can service all of our Buloke families.
