Resolving Centrelink and Medicare notices

Following changes by the Federal Government to childhood immunisation requirement, parents may have received letters from either Centrelink or Medicare notifying them that their child is overdue for vaccines. Unfortunately these letters do not provide parents with enough information to resolve their issues.

Council has received a very high number of phone calls in relation to Centrelink payments and a tip sheet is provided below to support parents in resolving their issues.
