Attending an Immunisation Session

On arrival at the community centre, the Concierge can direct you to the room in which immunisation is taking place.

Step 1

As you enter the room, please go to the front desk where our staff will check you in.

You will be asked to

  • confirm your child’s details
  • confirm the vaccines your child is coming for
  • provide your child’s green Baby Health Record book if you have one
  • read the pre-vaccination checklist

It is important when reading the checklist that you tell the staff if anything on the list is relevant, as it may change the vaccination requirements for your child.

If there is any other information that you think may be significant, please let the staff know.

The staff will

Step 2

The nurse will

  • confirm your child’s age
  • ask about your child’s previous vaccinations if any
  • explain the vaccines to be given, the sites they are given in, and the possible side effects
  • ask if you have any questions and answer them for you
  • ask you to sign the consent card on your first visit
  • they will then vaccinate your child, sign the Record Book, and record the vaccination sites on the side effect sheet

Step 3

You will be asked to wait in the waiting area for 15 minutes to ensure that your child does not have a reaction to any of the vaccines. Should you have any questions or concerns during this time, please talk to one of the nurses.

Things to remember

  • Please bring your Medicare card with you on your child’s first visit for the staff to record.

If you do not have one, you can still attend our sessions

  • Inform the administration staff if your address has changed
  • Dress your baby/child in clothes that can easily be removed to allow the nurses to access your child’s limbs. Children under one year of age will have injections in their thighs. Children over one year will have injections in their arms, or a combination of arms and legs, depending on which vaccines are being given.
