Offering Child Immunisation at our Adelaide Clinics

Immunisation protects a child against serious childhood infections. Routine childhood immunisations protect against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis), polio, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal C disease, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), rotavirus, chickenpox, measles, mumps and rubella (German measles).

The National Immunisation Program describes the routine child immunisations recommended for all children in Australia. Some groups are more at risk than others in the community and may need additional vaccines.

At Pro Medical SA, our team of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners will ensure that your child is immunised according to the National Immunisation Program. We will register your child with the national registry to ensure that your child is placed on a recall list to remind you when their next immunisation is due.
