Immunisation

Moira Shire Council provides immunisation sessions as a community service for families with young children.

Sessions are also provided for adolescents at secondary school venues.

Vaccinations are free under the National Immunisation Program for Australian residents and holders of protection visas.

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting children against diseases.

Immunisations protect children and adults against harmful infections before they come into contact with them in the community.

  • No appointments are required.
  • Please bring your child’s Health Book to immunisation sessions.

Vaccination History

If your child is under 14 years of age, immunisation history statements are available online, through the Australian Immunisation Register, Existing Customers section at Department of Human Services.

For all other enquiries in relation to immunisation records for individuals that have been immunised through a Moira Shire Council immunisation service, please complete the Application for Immunisation Record form. All records will be posted within 5 days of Council receiving the completed application form. Council is not able to provide records of immunisations given by doctors or other providers.
