Immunisation

Immunisation (also known as vaccinations) is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting individuals against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them. Immunisation doesn’t just protect people, but also others in the community, by stopping the spread of preventable infections and illness

Up until the 1950s, thousands of Aussie kids died each year from infectious diseases such as smallpox, diphtheria, polio and measles. Immunisation programs have controlled and, in some cases, wiped out these diseases in Australia.

At Dural Family Medical Practice, we offer a wide range of immunisations including:

– Flu (influenza) shots.
– COVID-19 Immunisations – Pfizer Comirnaty Adults and Children’s doses; Novavax (Nuvaxovid) and AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) vaccinations
– Childhood Vaccinations
– All Vaccinations under the National Immunisation Programme (NIP)
– Travel Vaccinations (eg. Hepatitis A and B, typhoid)
– Boostrix (Whooping cough / Pertussis) vaccination for pregnant women and grandparents-to-be
– Shingles (Zostavax) immunisation
– Tetanus (ADT) shots for any traumatic injuries or accidents.

Parents and Caregivers, by following the current National Immunisation Programme Schedule, you protect your child from a number of infectious diseases including:

chicken pox
diphtheria
haemophilus influenza type b (Hib)
hepatitis B
human papillomavirus (HPV)
influenza (flu)
measles
meningococcal A,C,W,Y
mumps
pneumococcal
poliomyelitis
rotavirus (for babies under 6 months)
rubella (German measles)
tetanus
whooping cough (pertussis).

So come on in and do your bit and get vaccinated! And lastly, don’t forget: it’s never too late to vaccinate.
