Is there an immunisation program for my children?
Council conducts immunisation programs for school children against preventable diseases in accordance with the requirements of The National Health and Medical Research Council's Australian Immunisation Handbook. Immunisations include Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough and Human Papilloma Virus. Programmes are conducted annually, according to the National Immunisation Program Schedule. In 2017 we will be conducting sessions for Grade 7 students at Deloraine High School.
If you would like to find out more about immunisations in Tasmania, visit the Department of Health and Human Services website.
How can I access Immunisation records for myself or my children?
Council maintains an accurate record of previous immunisations which it has conducted. Schools who have previously been involved in Council Immunisation Programs include: Bracknell Primary, Deloraine Primary, Deloraine High, Hagley Farm School, Meander Primary, Mole Creek Primary, Our Lady Of Mercy Catholic School and Westbury Primary. Council also maintains records for Public Clinics prior to 2002-2003. If you are looking for records from St Patrick’s College, Prospect High or Summerdale Primary, you will need to contact City of Launceston.
