Immunisation and vaccination

Bellambi Medical Centre is commited to maintaining a high standard in preventinve care in the Northern Illawara. Our immunisation services include childhood, travel, seasonal (flu), employment vaccinations other (upon enquiry). All of our procedures are fully accredited.

Vaccination is when a vaccine is administered to you (usually by injection). Immunisation is what happens in your body after you have the vaccination. The vaccine stimulates your immune system so that it can recognise the disease and protect you from future infection (i.e. you become immune to the infection)

Please contact us to find out more details for procedures and drugs used at our medical centre.
