It is expected that children receive all available immunisations. Talk to your care team first to make sure you have information about previous immunisations, what immunisations are required and whether you need to talk to anyone else prior to going ahead with immunisations.

It may be necessary to consult with the child’s parents first, especially if they will be returning home at some point.

Visit the websites below for current immunisation schedules in your state or territory.
