Ask us for advice on immunisation at any stage of life
Whether it is “baby needles” or the shingles vaccination for older adults, at all stages of life you can help maintain good health and prevent serious illness by keeping you and your fasmily’s immunisations up to date.
Reydon Street Medical Centre has Government-funded vaccines available on site, and we regularly vaccinate children and adults in line with the Queensland Health and Australian Immunisation Schedule. We are able to update your infant or child’s Australian Immunisation Record (AIR) – this was previously known as the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register. In addition, we are happy to help with older children and adolescents who either miss or choose not to be immunised at School.
The Immunisations recommended for Australians are frequently updated as disease patterns change or as the available vaccinations are improved and it can be hard to keep up. The current recommendations may not match the Red Book given to you when your baby was born. It’s easy to check the latest advice on Queensland Health’s “Immunisation Schedule Queensland” website. Check your child’s immunisation by age using the Queensland Health charts below:
When there is a change to the state-funded immunisations there may be a number of “catch-up” programs for patients who have missed out. Our doctors would be happy to see you to discuss these and arrange vaccination where needed.
Meningitis ACWY is given to Year 10 Students, and there is a catch up program for Meningitis ACWY for teenagers aged 15 to 19 years old who have missed out. Book an appointment soon to ensure you don’t miss out on protection agaisnt this serious life-threatening disease.
You can check whether your family’s immunisations are up to date through the AIR website and you can also check the immunisations given to your child at school by the Brisbane City Council immunisation service.
For those who are venturing further afield, we are happy to advise on the recommended overeas travel vaccinations and where we do not have stock on hand, the pharmacy just across the road will be able to help supply these.
