Baby immunisation clinics
Council runs four free childhood immunisation clinics each month for 0 to 4 year olds.
Immunisation is a simple and effective method of protecting children from a range of preventable diseases.
Our free clinics are held at the Gillieston Heights Community Hub 25 Redwood Drive, Gillieston Heights.
Immunisation is available to children 6 weeks, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and 4 years. Your child MUST be age appropriate or older to receive a vaccination. Your child cannot be younger than the vaccination age they are due to receive.
