By February 22, 2019May 23rd, 2023immunisation, vaccination

The National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule is a series of immunisations given at specific times throughout your life. The immunisations range from birth through to adulthood.

All vaccines listed in the NIP Schedule are free.

To get the best possible protection, make sure you have your immunisations on time, every time.

This schedule card provides information on changes to the National Immunisation Program childhood schedule from 1 July 2018.

State and territory health departments also fund some additional vaccines. It is important to also check the immunisation schedule for your area.  Queensland schedule

Robina 7 Day Doctors and Acupuncture recommend this video overview of the National Immunisation Program:

If you’re not sure what vaccines you or your child have received, you can request an immunisation history statement from the national registers.

You can book an appointment to get vaccinated through a range of providers, including your local GP.

During your visit, your vaccination provider will ask questions about your own or your child’s health to make sure vaccinations are safe.

Sometimes you may experience mild reactions from vaccines, such as pain at the injection site, a rash or a fever. Find out what to look out for and what you should do if you’re worried.

Don’t forget when your vaccinations are due. Smartphone reminder apps are a great way to manage your or your child’s vaccination schedule.
