Immunisation is one of the most cost effective public health interventions by which to maintain and protect the health of the population via the reduction, elimination and eradication of preventable communicable diseases. Immunisation protects not only the individual but the wider community from the spread of infection and disease by decreasing the number of vulnerable people in the population.
At Horsham Rural City Council we provide free immunisations for infants, children and adults each month, in accordance with the National Immunisation Program.
Council is offering immunisations at three locations in 2017. See the document below for full details.
