Childhood Immunisations

Since the introduction of immunisations, we have seen diseases that cause large numbers of children to die or develop physical or mental disabilities almost disappear. Children are immunised at 2, 4, 6, 12 & 18mths of age, then again at the age of 4 years. These immunisations cover 13 different infections.

Immunisations provide stimulus to the body, and this induces the child’s body to develop antibodies. The antibodies are like memory cells. These cells are stored in the child’s body and are recruited to fight a disease, should your child be exposed to that specific germ or illness.

The decision for parents to have their children immunised is a wise and good one; however, do come in and talk to our nurses or doctors if you have any reservations or to understand better why we immunise children.

Make an appointment for childhood immunisations today. Phone our staff on (07) 4128 4563 or book online.

Why Get Vaccinated?

Vaccinations are a safe and effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones against harmful, contagious diseases. By becoming vaccinated, you are safeguarding the health of everyone around you, including future generations to come.

Before vaccinations were introduced and accepted by the general public, thousands of people, including children, were killed by diseases such as tetanus and whooping cough. We are now privileged enough to have outstanding healthcare systems in Australia that prevent and protect against such diseases.

Immunisation can limit the spread of disease within the community when enough people become vaccinated. The vaccine protects people at high risk of getting the disease, including those who aren’t vaccinated. Thus, even those too young or too ill to be vaccinated will not become infected. This process is commonly referred to as ‘herd immunity’ and plays a massive role in safeguarding entire communities.

Babies usually receive their first vaccine at the age of 2 months. They will typically receive another vaccine dose at 4, 6, 12 and 18 months as well.
The flu vaccine is free for eligible people. These include children aged 6 months to less than 5 years, all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over, pregnant women, people aged 6 months and over with certain medical conditions and people aged 65 and over.
Vaccines contain a weakened or inactive parts of an organism that once injected into the body, triggers an immune response. Your body then develops an antibody that improves your immune system. This means that the next time your body contracts a disease, it remembers how to fight it off.
