CHILDREN'S HEALTH

Childhood Immunisations:

These vaccinations provide protection from many diseases, including chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, whooping cough and so on.  The Australian National Immunisation Program has vaccines at 6 weeks, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and 4 years.

  • While immunisation doesn't always stop your child being infected, if your child does become infected with these diseases, their illness will be much less severe

  • All childhood vaccines are available free of charge for medicare patients.  

  • Influenza, Tetanus, Pneumococcal, Hepatitis A & B and Whooping Cough (Pertussis) vaccines can be arranged.  

  • Ongoing school program vaccinations are also available.  

  • Travel vaccination advice and requirements are available but may not be covered by Medicare rebates.

 

Newborn Assessment:
  • Your newborn needs to have a full body examination at 2 and 8 weeks.

  • These checks help determine the health of your child following birth. 

 

Developmental Check:
  • We all know that children develop and achieve their milestones at their own pace.

  • If you are worried, we can assess their developmental milestones using standardised tests.
