Childhood Immunisation

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting children against certain diseases. The risks of these diseases are far greater than the very small risks of immunisation.

The Mid North Coast Local Health District Childhood Immunisation Service is available to all children under the age of 5. Clinics are staffed by accredited child and family health nurses and provide immunisation for the following infectious diseases:

  • diphtheria
  • tetanus
  • pertussis (whooping cough)
  • polio
  • pneumococcal
  • measles
  • mumps
  • rubella
  • Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b)
  • hepatitis B
  • varicella (chicken pox)
  • rotavirus
  • meningococcal ACWY
  • meningococcal B (Aboriginal children).
