Many childhood diseases which are potentially life threatening are preventable.
The City of Wanneroo's Health Services team provides a free immunisation service for infants and children in accordance with the Western Australian Vaccination Schedule.
Immunisation clinics are held at local child health centres throughout the year. A certified immunisation nurse administers all of the vaccines and experienced staff are available to give advice.
To find out about your nearest clinic and dates for 2017 please see the immunisation roster or contact the City’s Health Services on 9405 5000.
Please note: appointments are necessary at all City of Wanneroo clinics.

These vaccines will be offered over three visits.
