Childhood Vaccinations

To protect your child from potentially serious diseases, immunisation is a safe and effective option.
We follow the National Immunisation Program Schedule administered by the Department of Health,
and more information is available on the Department of Health website. However, if you are ever
unsure, the doctors here at Northbridge Medical Centre are happy to answer your questions and
inform you about the vaccinations your child requires.

Adult Vaccinations

Vaccinations are also important for adults. If you are in any of the below circumstances, consider
booking an appointment for a vaccination:

  • A pregnant woman, who is recommended to receive a whooping cough vaccination and flu
    jab
  • A woman planning a pregnancy, who is recommended to get the rubella and chickenpox
    vaccine
  • An adult who missed out on vaccines in their childhood and may need catch-up or booster
    vaccines like tetanus
  • An older adult who may need vaccines for shingles, influenza or pneumococcal disease
    Additional immunisations are also recommended for various groups of people, such as Aboriginal
    and Torres Strait Islander people, as well as those with certain medical conditions.
    Some other available immunisations include:
  • Hepatitis B
  • Pneumococcal Vaccine
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus and Acellular Pertussis

Travel Vaccinations

Prior to travelling overseas or within the country, it is recommended that you visit a GP to inform
you of the potential illnesses that could impact your holiday. At Northbridge Medical Centre, we

provide thorough health consultations and advice before and after you travel to your holiday
destination so that you can enjoy a safe and healthy trip with your family and friends.
