Immunisation

Immunisation Sessions

We conduct public immunisations in various locations with no appointment necessary. 

The locations and times for all immunisation sessions are detailed in the Immunisation Schedule.

School Entry Immunisation Certificate

A School Entry Immunisation Certificate is required when enrolling children at school. A certificate can only be issued on completion of all of the scheduled infant immunisation up to and including the 4 year old immunisation.

You will automatically receive a history statement from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) after your child has completed the 4 year old vaccine schedule if all immunisations are completed prior to 5 years of age. It should state at the bottom of the page "This child has received all vaccines required by five years of age".  If it does, this history statement becomes a school entry immunisation certificate.

If you have not received, or have lost, your history statement call ACIR on 1800 653 809.

School Immunisation Program

We also provide yearly school immunisation sessions for Year 7 students to immunise against Chickenpox (Varilrix/Varivax),  Human Papillomavirus (Gardasil) and Diphtheria, Tetanus and Whooping Cough (Boostrix).

Immunisation History

If you or your child were immunised by Latrobe City Council as an infant or throughout your schooling you can ask to receive your individual immunisation history. We cannot obtain histories if you or your child were immunised with a local doctor.

To get an immunisation history please complete the Application for Immunisation History Form(PDF, 103KB) and return it to one of our Service Centres along with the appropriate fee.

Corporate/Workplace Immunisation

We provide immunisations on site at workplaces with ten or more staff. The cost is dependant upon the number and type of immunisations required. Please phone Family Services Immunisation on 1300 367 700 for more information.
