Immunisation sessions still open
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has stated that immunisation is an essential service. The City of Casey will continue this service with all immunisation sessions remaining opened and bookable as planned.
Changes to immunisation sessions due to coronavirus
- To help with social distancing, you will need to book a time online before coming.
- Please do not attend the sessions if you are unwell.
- Social distancing measures are in place. We request people to attend with one carer.
- Please be aware that contact details collected for booked sessions may be used for coronavirus contact tracing if required.
- It is a condition of entry that people aged over 12 attending a session must wear a face covering (e.g. a face mask) unless they have a valid reason for not doing so, like a medical condition such as asthma. Please inform our staff before attending a session if this situation applies to you by contacting us on 9705 5200 or upon your arrival at the session.
Public immunisation sessions are for government-funded vaccines only. Please check your eligibility before booking a session. Anyone wishing to obtain vaccines not on this list will need to see their GP.
Public Immunisation Sessions vary between venues. Please start with your preferred venue, then select a time that best suits you.
The City of Casey Immunisation Service only provides government-funded flu shots when stock is available. Please contact us for stock availability specific to you or your child’s needs. If you are not eligible for the free flu vaccine, you will need to go to your GP or local pharmacy to get your flu shot.
If you are unable to book online, please contact us.
Privacy information - Online booking system
Before the session
You will need to check where your child is up to in their immunisation schedule. You can do this by:
Your Medicare online account
Express Plus Medicare mobile app
Going to a Medicare service centre
Calling the Australian Immunisation Register – 1800 653 809
Rescheduling a session
If you can no longer attend a session, you can use the messaging feature in the booking system. Otherwise, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your booking details and your child's name.
If you are late we can't ensure there will be another time available. Our immunisation staff will try and fit you in when you arrive, but you may need to book another session. To reschedule, follow the same steps taken for your initial booking.
What to bring to a session
Your Child Health Record Book (the 'green book'). This will help us access your child’s details.
Your Medicare card (for the first visit only).
Your booking reference number. Show your confirmation email or the reference number written down.
Something to comfort your child, such as their favourite toy.
After the session
Your child must wait 15 minutes after the session to make sure they do not have any unexpected reactions to the vaccine(s).
We will forward your child’s immunisation records to the Australian Immunisation Register. This will allow you to receive:
an immunisation history statement so your child can go to school
any family allowances relating to immunisation.
As the parent or guardian of a child under 18 years of age, you must provide legal consent before your child can be immunised. The immunisation staff will explain the risks and benefits of the vaccine at your session.
