Council’s next free immunisation clinic is scheduled for Thursday September 1. The aim of the vaccinations at the clinics is to provide immunity against a number of diseases including: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, pneumococcal, rotavirus, measles, mumps, rubella, meningococcal C and chicken pox. Many of these diseases have made a comeback after being almost eradicated in past decades and immunisation is the proven way of keeping them in check. The immunisation clinics operate on the first Thursday of each month at Mascot Early Childhood Centre, 51 Coward Street, Mascot, between 9.00am and 10.00am and the Central Library, Eastgardens Shopping Centre, between 2.00pm and 3.00pm and again at night between 6.00pm and 7.00pm.
