Immunisation protects your child from serious illnesses, some of which can be life threatening. In addition to the immunisations offered to all children under the National Immunisation Program, additional immunisations are recommended for children who are considered at a higher risk of getting certain diseases and having health problems.

The following practitioners at CPMG are experts in paediatric immunisations:
