Immunisation catch up for refugees

We are currently piloting a State Government funded program, helping refugee and asylum seekers, who live within the City of Whittlesea and the City of Hume, of all ages catch up on their immunisations.


All off-shore records can be translated, and catch-up schedules can be created to assist you to complete your immunisations according to an Australian schedule.

All appointments and vaccinations are free of charge. An Arabic speaking refugee community liaison officer is also onsite.
