IMMUNISATION CLINICS
Immunisation is an important process for the prevention of disease across our community. The Adelaide Hills Council conducts public immunisation clinics at both Stirling and Woodside.

Click here to download the Immunisation Clinic Schedule for both Stirling and Woodside.

Appointments are not available, the clinics are run in a drop-in style.

The Government of South Australia provides an online immunisation calculator for parents to ensure their children are receiving all the Australian standard vaccines.

Seasonal flu vaccines are generally available from early April. Vaccinations are available at any of the listed clinics with no bookings required. The FluQuadri vaccine is currently available at a cost of $25. Please be aware that NO FEE applies for pregnant women or people over 65 years of age. Please discuss this with the nurse at the time of your vaccination.

For Hepatitis A or the Combined Hepatitis A and B (Twinrix) vaccine, please contact council at least seven days before the clinic to ensure availability. Hepatitis B vaccines are also available.
