Free Influenza Vaccinations for Children

Whitehorse News (Special Edition) - April 2020

From 14 April 2020, Whitehorse City Council will provide dedicated and free flu vaccines for all children aged 6 months and less to 4 years and 11 months.

Whitehorse City Council has introduced a booking system for these vaccinations.

To book please call Council on 9262 6197.

If this is the first year your child is receiving the flu vaccination your child will require two doses, one month apart. Please ensure you book two appointments at least one month apart. If your child has received the flu vaccination in a previous year, only one dose is required.

Council has introduced a number of control measures during immunisation sessions including implementing a booking system, social distancing and additional hygiene measures.

Upon arrival at the public flu vaccination session you will be requested to complete a declaration covering exclusion requirements.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to get your flu vaccine to stay healthy and relieve pressure on our medical services.
