Immunisation

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way to protect you and your children against infectious diseases that may cause serious illness, permanent damage or even death. 

Council offers free vaccination for all children for vaccines included on the National Immunisation Schedule.

 Immunisation clinics are held on the third Wednesday of every month at the Renmark Paringa Community & Civic Centre, Eighteenth Street, Renmark, between 1:00 – 3:15pm.

 What you need to bring:

  • Medicare Card
  • Your child’s ‘immunisation record book’

A parent or legal guardian must accompany the child to the immunisation clinic to provide a valid consent.

 To book your child into one of our clinics please call the Council office on 8580 3000.
