Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them. Immunisation not only protects individuals, but also others in the community, by reducing the spread of preventable diseases. The City of Mitcham is committed to the health and well being of our community.

For further information or queries about the City of Mitcham's immunisation service please call 8372 8816.

National Immunisation Program – Eligibility

Adolescents in Year 10 aged approximately 14 to 16 years through SA School-based Vaccination Program.

Adolescents 15 to 19 years of age who have not received the vaccine at school can receive it from their GP or other immunisation provider through an ongoing catch-up program.

Patients who do not meet NIP eligibility criteria and wish to be vaccinated can obtain the meningococcal ACWY vaccine (and also the meningococcal B vaccine) via private prescription (GPs only).

The Flu vaccine is now available through the Council's community immunisation clinics and is free if you are classified as 'high risk'.
