Immunisation

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting against harmful diseases.

Our immunisation program offers vaccinations listed under the National Immunisation Program Schedule and operates within the National Health and Medical Research Council (NH&MRC) guidelines.

You can see the immunisation schedules on the Queensland Health website.

The community we live in influences our health and through immunisation, we can mitigate disease and increase health and wellbeing. Our Immunisation strategy 2022 - 2025 (PDF 230 MB) defines key directions and actions for us that will contribute to positive outcomes for our city.

For more information about immunisation, please call us on 07 3412 4039.

Community immunisation clinics

We run weekly immunisation clinics across the city. These clinics offer all vaccinations listed on the National Immunisation Schedule. Vaccines are also available to purchase.

Book an appointment

We have transitioned to an online booking system for our Immunisation clinics. As our clinics are busy and often reach capacity, it is essential to register and make a booking on the Vaxapp system in order to ensure you are able to be seen. While we do accept walk ins, there are limited availabilities and if a clinic has reached capacity, walk ins will not be able to be seen and will be assisted in making a future booking.

Book an immunisation appointment using VaxApp

You can book and manage your vaccination appointment online using VaxApp - an immunisation management platform we are using to improve our service delivery.

Using VaxApp, you can:

  • create an account and manage your profile
  • book and manage individual and family appointments online
  • provide digital consent during the booking process, which reduces wait time when you arrive
  • receive reminders about your booking, and future appointment bookings.

For more information, see Vax App frequently asked questions.

If you need help making an appointment, email our immunisation team on immunisation@logan.qld.gov.au or call us on 07 3412 4039.

The vaccine is free for Indigenous children under 2 years of age and people with specific medical conditions. For all other infants, children, adolescent and young adults wishing to be vaccinated, the vaccine can be purchased for $99 per dose from any of our Community Immunisation Clinics. 

Multiple doses may be required and the vaccine can be administered at the same time as other vaccines listed on the National Immunisation Schedule (from six weeks of age).

It is recommended to administer paracetamol to children less than two years of age approximately 30 minutes before receiving the Meningococcal B vaccine.

Information sheets

Immunisation records

The Australian Immunisation Register is a national register administered by Medicare. Historically, this register recorded vaccines given to children under 10 years of age. In 2016, it became a whole-of-life register.

Updating the Australian Immunisation Register

Vaccines administered by Logan City Council

All vaccines administered by Logan City Council Immunisation Team are recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register. 

If your immunisations (or your child’s immunisations) are not listed on the Australian Immunisation Register and you would like us to update your record, please email the immunisation team at immunisation@logan.qld.gov.au and include the following information:

  • full name and date of birth
  • Medicare number
  • school name (if high school student).

Vaccines administered overseas

If you or your child received vaccines overseas and would like these recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register, please email the immunisation team at immunisation@logan.qld.gov.au and include the following information:

  • full name and date of birth
  • Medicare number
  • copy of the immunisation record.

Requesting records

The quickest and easiest way to access your immunisation records is online. Log into your Medicare online account through myGov or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.

If you would like a record of vaccines given only by Logan City Council, you will need to download and fill in the Immunisation records request form (PDF 196 KB). Send the completed form with a certified copy of your identification to Immunisation@logan.qld.gov.au. Your request will be processed within 14 days.

We must act in line with the Information Privacy Act 2009 and will not process your request without certified identification.

A certified copy of identification is a copy of an original identification document that has been verified as a true copy by an authorised witness. Suitable identification documents include your driver’s licence (copy of front and back), passport or birth certificate. Authorised witnesses include lawyers, Justices of the Peace or Commissioners for Declarations. The person witnessing the document will need to see your original identification document. 

If you don’t have a certified copy of an identification document, you can visit one of our customer service centres and a council officer can photocopy and validate your identification (such as your driver’s licence, passport or birth certificate).

  • If you missed a vaccination - take your child to one of our immunisation clinics or your doctor to catch up
  • If your child is fully vaccinated, but:
    • Medicare online shows there are outstanding vaccinations - contact the healthcare provider who gave your child the vaccination and ask them to send the details to the Australian Immunisation Register
    • Medicare online is up to date, but Centrelink has sent you a letter saying vaccinations are overduemake sure you have given Centrelink permission to access your child’s immunisation records. Call Centrelink or Medicare to have them link your records
    • If your child was born and vaccinated overseas - you need to have your records added to the Australian Immunisation Register. You can email your child’s full name, date of birth, Medicare number, and a copy of the immunisation record to us at immunisation@logan.qld.gov.au
