Immunisation

Immunisation is a simple and effective way of protecting yourself and your family. Immunisation works by triggering the immune system to fight against certain diseases. If a vaccinated person comes in contact with these diseases, their immune system is able to respond more effectively. Find out about Central Coast Council’s free immunisation clinics for children.

Central Coast Council holds free immunisation clinics for children from new born through to pre-school age.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, Central Coast Council is required to implement new controls to protect both you and our staff. We appreciate your cooperation in this difficult and constantly changing time and request you in assist us with the following changes to our clinic:

  1. Only one (1) parent/carer is permitted to enter the building with the child to be vaccinated. 
    - Additional adults and children are required to remain outside the building.
    - Ensure additional children are supervised. 
    - If you cannot meet this requirement, it is suggested that that you make an appointment with your GP or attend the next available vaccination clinic with only the child to be vaccinated.
  2. Advise us immediately upon arrival if you or your child is unwell. 
  3. Provide your child’s name and a contact phone number to the Ranger at the entry door.
  4. Wait outside the building and do not enter until requested.
  5. We will ring you to return to the entry door, please do not leave the immediate area of the clinic venue. We will make one (1) call only for you to return.
  6. Upon entering the building, you will be directed to the health screening nurse.
  7. You will be required to apply sanitiser to your hands and to the hands of your child if that child is 12 months or older.
  8. At all times you must ensure that you and your child maintain the “social distancing” requirement of 1.5m spacing to other people.
  9. At the completion of the vaccination process you are required to wait 15 minutes for observation of your child, is the designated area, please ensure you maintain social distancing during this time.

The Lake Munmorah and Wyong Clinics can no longer go ahead. Council has adjusted the times of the Lake Haven and Long Jetty Clinics to allow you more time to attend the nearest venue. Please click here for the new flyer with the adjusted times. 

We appreciate your assistance and understanding during this very difficult time.
