  • Q&A with Australian Health Practitioners

    How much do vaccines typically cost and where is the best place to get immunised?

    Is it best to go to your general practitioner/nurse? How much do they each cost? Are there places people can go where they care cheaper?

    Babies and preschoolers can be immunised at a community immunisation session (details could be found by contacting your local council), at your local GP or at some children’s hospitals (for example, the Royal Children’s Hospital in Victoria has an immunisation service available for drop in appointments).
