It is important to have your child vaccinated on time to protect them from various infections.  For more information on the National Immunisation Program Schedule, please visit

On the day of the appointment, it is important to bring in your child’s immunisation “red book” so that their vaccination can be recorded accurately; please allow up to 1 week for these details to be uploaded onto the Australian Immunisation Register.

For any catch-up vaccination, you will first need book a consultation with the doctor or nurse to determine required vaccines and establish a recommended catch up schedule.  If you have any relevant history from the Australian Immunisation Register or Gold Coast Health, please make sure to bring it you at the time of your consultation.

All childhood immunisations must be scheduled on weekdays with both a nurse and doctor prior to 2pm. Please call reception if you need to make a booking.
