Immunisation is one of the best ways you can protect yourself, your children, and future generations from infectious diseases.
Immunisations use your body’s immune system to increase protection from an infection before you come into contact with that infection. If you come into contact with that infection after you’ve been vaccinated, your body works to stop you from getting the infection, or you may just get a mild case.
Some people in our community cannot be vaccinated. This might be because they are too young or too sick. You can help protect these vulnerable people by keeping your family’s immunisations up to date.
If you have any questions about immunisation, please contact us and ask to speak to one of our Nurses. Alternatively, you can contact our local Public Health Unit on (02)49246477 or see the website for the NCIRS: National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, at www.ncirs.org.au
