Immunisation sessions for children, adolescents and adults

We run open immunisation sessions and appointment clinics at different venues around our community.

COVID-19 vaccination

We do not provide COVID-19 vaccines at our regular community immunisation sessions. However, we run pop-up clinics in partnership with Your Community Health, and many GPs and pharmacies offer COVID-19 vaccines across Darebin.

For more information, please visit Let's do it Darebin, the Victorian government Coronavirus website, the Australian Government Department of Health website.

Immunisation sessions

Everyone is welcome to attend any of our open sessions and appointment clinics, including babies, children, adolescents and adults. All the vaccines offered by our service are available at every session.

When attending immunisation sessions, please keep the following COVID-Safe protocols in mind:

  • Do not attend if you, your child, or anyone in your household is experiencing cold- or flu-like symptoms, or is awaiting the result of a COVID test
  • Social distancing and infection control guidelines will be in place at immunisation sessions
  • You must wear a face mask unless a lawful exemption applies
  • You must wash or sanitise your hands on entry

Other things to keep in mind:

  • Bring your pram or stroller - there is plenty of space and ramp access at our venues
  • Bring your Medicare card (if you have one), your child’s Green MCH Book, and any other immunisation history documents with you
  • Photography and videoing are not permitted at immunisation sessions
  • Payments are with EFTPOS or credit card - no payments with cash

Open sessions

Open sessions are drop-in, and no appointment is needed.
