Immunisation

The Immunisation Unit at ACT Health manages the ACT Immunisation Program. We provide vaccines to all immunisation providers in the ACT. If you have any questions about immunisation or promotional material, please call us on (02) 6205 2300 or email Immunisation@act.gov.au Information on immunisation and communicable diseases is available for the public.

Immunisation is one of the most effective healthcare interventions. Getting vaccinated not only helps protect yourself but also those around you by increasing the level of immunity in the population.

It’s estimated that immunisation programs worldwide prevent approximately 2.5 million deaths every year.

All vaccines in Australia undergo extensive research and are approved for use under the Therapeutic Goods Administration. Vaccines are tested over several years before they are licensed to ensure safety and quality.

If you do experience an adverse reaction following an immunisation (AEFI), please complete the Immunisation Adverse Event Reaction Form or call our Immunisation Unit on 02 6205 2300.

Free vaccines are available for children aged 6 months to under 5 years (flu), teenagers aged 16-19 (meningococcal disease), and people over 70 (Shingles (Herpes Zoster).

Please contact us on 02 6205 2300 or at immunisation@act.gov.au if you have questions or need more information. We manage the ACT Immunisation Program and provide vaccines to all immunisation providers in the ACT.
