Wodonga Council provides free immunisation to all members of the public, across all age groups, for vaccinations on the National Immunisation Program Schedule (NIPS). Immunisation is a safe and effective way of protecting our community against harmful diseases.
Wodonga Council does not offer the COVID-19 vaccine. For current COVID-19 vaccination information, please call the Victorian Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398, book online or visit the Australian Government COVID-19 Vaccination page at health.gov.au/covid19-vaccine
Please note: There no longer needs to be a seven day interval between the COVID-19 vaccination and any other vaccine.
All bookings are by appointment only, please phone 1800 655 360 to book your spot.
The following client groups are eligible to receive the flu vaccine free of charge at a council immunisation session:
- Children from 6 months to less than five years of age
- Adults aged 65 years and over
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
- Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)
- People aged six months and over with medical conditions which increase the risk of complications, including:
- cardiac disease
- chronic respiratory conditions
- chronic neurological conditions
- immunocompromising conditions
- diabetes and other metabolic disorders
- renal disease
- haematological disorders
- children aged six months to 10 years on long term aspirin therapy.
Children under nine years receiving their influenza vaccination for the first time require two doses of vaccine, spaced by a minimum of one month.
Anyone who does not fall under one of the above categories will not qualify for free flu vaccine at a council immunisation session. Those people will need to attend a pharmacy of participating GP to receive the flu vaccine for free.
Only one parent/guardian or support person is permitted to attend with each client to be vaccinated at council immunisation sessions.
