Immunisation Clinics

Perhaps the most important of all Council front line health services are the free immunisation clinics, which are held every month.  On the first Thursday, these doctor led clinics enable all children to be immunised against life-threatening diseases.
A lack of immunisation increases the risk of suffering from diseases that are preventable – whooping cough, polio and many more.  Immunisation not only protects your own children but those they mix with at school, pre-school, play groups and in playgrounds.  It also reduces the frequency with which these life threatening illness occur.

The monthly Council immunisation clinics are held, on the first Thursday of each month in three locations;
  • Mascot Early Childhood Centre, 51 Coward Street, Mascot between 9.00am and 10.00am; 
  • The Central Library, Ground Floor Eastgardens Shopping Centre between 2.00pm and 3.00pm and between 6.00pm and 7.00pm. 
The next date the clinics will be held on is December 6 so, if you want to keep your child’s immunisation up to date, then come along.
