Local Government in Victoria plays an important role in delivering immunisation services to the Victorian public. It currently provides approximately half of all immunisation encounters for children aged zero to six given in Victoria and contributes significantly to raising the importance of immunisation in local communities. Local government administers approximately 90 per cent of immunisations due at school age.
Council offers free vaccinations, a school program as well as opportunistic vaccinations. These vaccines are offered in accordance with the National Immunisation Program Schedule.
