Childhood immunisations are available at Erskineville Doctors. The immunisation schedule covers immunisations at 6 weeks, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and 4 years. The full schedule is available here.
At these visits we take the opportunity to check your child’s growth and development, and to check on any concerns you have about their health and wellbeing. If the Practice Nurse is available she will see you and your child first and check their weight, and give you information about the vaccines on the schedule. She can also assist your doctor to administer vaccines.
For more information about government funded immunisation programs go to Immunise Australia. There are some other vaccines available that are not funded, but are recommended. These include vaccines for different strains of meningococcal disease. We can advise you about these.
NCIRS provides fact sheets on vaccine preventable diseases, as well as more detailed information about vaccine safety.
The Australian Academy of Science also provides education about immunisation.
For further information about common health problems for kids, see the SCH Factsheets.
For information about introducing solids to your baby’s diet go here for information about food and the prevention of allergies.
