Each local council throughout Victoria offers regular immunisation sessions for the administration of all funded National Immunisation Program (NIP) vaccines. Sessions are free to attend and people of all ages requiring NIP vaccines can be vaccinated. Sessions are run by accredited nurse immunisers with medical support. Some councils may also choose to have additional vaccines such as meningococcal ACWY (Nimenrix), influenza and chickenpox vaccines available for purchase for those who do not meet the eligibility criteria for funded vaccines [see resources]. All vaccines administered are recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) [see resources].

Please refer to the tables below for contact details of your local council to obtain further information regarding session times.
