Here are some tips from Dept of Health Immunisation website.
If you’re not sure what vaccines you or your child have received, you can request an immunisation history statement from the national registers or look on MyGov- Medicare Immunisation record.
Book an appointment by calling our clinic to arrange as these are combined with our GP and nurse.
Come prepared! Take these steps before you or your child receive a vaccine to help make the immunisation visit less stressful.
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.
