Immunisation Advice

Find out more about immunisation at the  NSW Health Immunisation website

An  immunisation clinic operates at the Ashfield Civic Centre on the first Wednesday of the month.

The clinic operates between 9.30am-11.00am.

The Civic Centre is located at 260 Liverpool Road, Ashfield. Please make your way to the Activity Rooms 3 & 4 via the Customer Service Centre.

Vaccines are administered by experienced and qualified doctors and nurses to all local children in accordance with national guidelines.

One of the benefits of our clinic is the reminder system, where parents are sent a reminder letter and invitation to the clinic when each vaccination is due.

This is an advantage for busy parents, parents with low English proficiency and grandparents and other carers.

For more information about immunisation, please contact our Immunisation Officer on 9716 1916.
