Government funded catch-up program

The currently funded catch-up program for all children under 10 years of age will continue until further notice.

Until 31 December 2017, there is a funded catch-up program for children up to 19 years of age, covering some overdue childhood and adolescent vaccinations.

If your child/children requires a catch-up schedule recommended by our immunisation team, please contact us on health.services@knox.vic.gov.au with the below information prior to attending our public immunisation session.

  • Child's full name
  • Child's date of birth
  • Medicare number (if available)
  • Copy of all immunisation history, such as child immunisation book or vaccination record from GP

Calculating a catch-up schedule may take up to two weeks. We are unable to carry out any catch-up vaccinations at busy public immunisation sessions without prior contact with our team.

More information on this vaccine can be found on the Victorian Government, Department of Health and Human Services website
