Does my teenager get free vaccines through school?

Page last updated 24 August 2018


All vaccines listed as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP) are free. If you miss the scheduled school vaccination programme, you may be able to access a free catch-up vaccine through your healthcare provider. If you choose to delay vaccination of your teenager, you will need to arrange your own vaccination and may be required to pay your doctor a consultation fee.
