Immunisation (or vaccination) is an important public health measure which aids in the protection against a wide range of preventable diseases and infections which can cause significant sickness in individuals. Prior to widespread availability of immunisations many preventable diseases (such as Measles) could result in serious infections, disability or even death. As a result, immunisation and vaccination play a vital role in your health and that of your community.

The Tuberculosis (TB) Vaccine

Tuberculosis (TB) is a serious illness that mainly affects the lungs. The germs that cause tuberculosis are a type of bacteria. Tuberculosis can spread when a person with the illness coughs, sneezes or sings.

Answering your questions

If you have any concerns about vaccinations we encourage you to discuss these with our friendly doctors who are happy to explain in detail the benefits and risks of immunisations.

Fortunately, as the vaccines have evolved, they are now safer than ever with minimal side effects and Australia has a comprehensive vaccination program which is free to Medicare card holders. All Government funded vaccinations are supplied free of charge at our clinic.

Even if you are not eligible for the Government funded vaccinations, in certain circumstances it is still recommended to get immunised, for example in preparation for travelling, if there is a newborn in the family, and/or you are working in the health profession.

Our immunisation service complies with Australian standards, and South City Doctors is fully accredited for the storage of immunisations and vaccinations. Our doctors are fully aware of the latest WHO (World Health Organisation) recommendations for travel to any part of the world.
