At The Local Doctor, we offer a comprehensive vaccination service including….

Routine Childhood vaccines 
Routine childhood vaccines commence at 6 weeks of age
For the 6 week immunisation, an appointment should be booked with your treating doctor who will perform a thorough new born check 
Subsequent routine vaccines are booked with the practice nurse and are bulk-billed for patients with a Medicare card. 
The government funds routine childhood immunisations with the exception of ‘bexero’ which is to treat Meningococcal B

Meningococcal B is the second most common cause of meningococcal disease. For several years, a vaccine called “Bexsero” has been available. It is effective, and we generally recommend it for all children. It is unfortunately not funded by the government. The price is generally $100 – $120 per dose (from your local pharmacy), and dependent on age up to 3 doses may be required.

Influenza vaccine
The Influenza vaccine is recommended annually for everyone aged 6 months and above 

COVID Vaccine
Our Clinic currently have Pfizer vaccine available and can be booked online 

Travel Vaccines
Please make an appointment with your doctor to discuss which travel vaccines are appropriate for your itinerary
