We at Eastlink Family Medical believe that immunisations are a safe and effective way of protecting our patients and the wider community against harmful infections and reducing the spread of diseases.
Children’s immune systems are still developing at a young age, and hence require specific immunisations to protect them from certain infections and diseases.
Child immunisation programs are for birth, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and 4 years.
The Victorian Childhood Immunisation Schedule outlines the vaccines that are provided free of charge for all Victorian children under the National Immunisation Program. For more information, visit http://www.immunise.health.gov.au/
If you have any questions, enquiries or would like to book in your child for their vaccines, please do not hesitate to book an appointment with your GP.
Adult immunisation requirements can vary depending on age, ethnicity, health history, occupation, travel plans and previous immunisation history.
We do both government eligible and private administration of the Flu vaccine. Therefore, it is free of cost from 6 months to 5 years of age and adults 65+ years old.
This is recommended and provided free of charge from 65 years of age. We encourage you to discuss further with your health professional.
This is recommended and provided free of charge at 70 years of age unless contraindicated. We encourage you to discuss further with your health professional.
Being a healthy weight is important to prevent illnesses such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, and cancer.
