Vaccinations

Our Nurses are qualified independent, authorised vaccinators that are able to administer various vaccinations depending on your workplace requirements. We can administer these either at our clinic or at your work site, whatever suits your situation best.  People receiving vaccines are able to discuss any questions or concern they may have prior to receiving vaccines and informed consent is gained prior to giving the vaccine.

If vaccines are to be provided at a site other than a health centre or hospital, as well as the Nurse, a further Level 4 (or equivalent) first aider is required to be present which we can also provide.  We can arrange to attend your preferred site with all the personnel and emergency equipment required to ensure safe delivery of your vaccines.

At times, vaccinations may be a requirement to control biological health risks in your workplace, such as Hepatitis A and B for those working in sectors such as healthcare, childcare, plumbing or animals.  Other vaccinations such as the influenza vaccine is available to avoid the spread of influenza and reduce absenteeism.

We offer the following immunisations:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Influenza (flu)
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Typhoid

We understand that vaccines can cause fear, nervousness or raise questions about their efficiency for some people.  That's why our Nurses are empathetic, patient and willing to discuss any concern you may have.  

Most vaccinations are administered into your deltoid; your upper arm.  The most common side effect of any vaccination is local redness which generally subsides within a day or two after the vaccine.
