Bayside Medical Group offers Nurse-led childhood immunisation clinics. These sessions are conducted on a regular basis and the service is bulk-billed so that no out-of-pocket fees are incurred.
Immunisation is the most significant public health intervention in the last 200 years, providing a safe and efficient way to prevent the spread of many diseases that cause hospitalisation, serious ongoing health conditions and sometimes death.
Our doctors also may immunise your child and this service is provided as part of a consultation and fees are incurred in the usual way.
Bayside Medical Group supports and recommends that the Standard Immunisation Schedule as set out by the Health Department is undertaken by every patient in our clinic.
The VaxOnTime app was created for parents of children under 5 years of age. It is an easy-to-use, intuitive app that aims to make life easier for parents with young children.
It prompts parents with an immunisation due date reminder, and helps them find the nearest immunisation provider and make an appointment, as well as linking them to trusted information on the Better Health Channel.
The app is available to download from the Apple Store, Google Play and Windows.
Parents can include immunisation provider details in the app, which will prompt them to call that provider to arrange due vaccinations
