Children continue to need vaccinations into their teens. From 11 – 16 a series of immunisations are given for the first time, when they are deemed to work best.
NSW is also currently offering a free catch up vaccine for 10-19 year olds, speak to your GP or health provider for more information.
Newly-arrived migrants (including refugees) attending Intensive English Centres (IECs) will be offered vaccines based on student age. Visit your local GP or health provider for more information.
Students who are enrolled in distance education or who are home-schooled are advised to attend their GP or other immunisation provider for free age-appropriate vaccinations.
