Immunisation catch up for refugees

Catch-up immunisations are strongly recommended and free in Australia for all newly arrived refugees and people seeking asylum. Immunisation can protect you, your family and the community from vaccine preventable diseases.

We are currently piloting a State Government funded program, helping refugee and people seeking asylum, who live within the City of Whittlesea and the City of Hume, of all ages to receive catch up immunisations.

How we can help you

All off-shore records can be translated, and catch-up schedules can be created to assist you to complete your immunisations according to an Australian schedule.

All appointments and vaccinations are free of charge. An Arabic speaking Refugee Community Liaison Officer is also onsite.

If you are interested in receiving catch-up immunisations or would like to know more about the Program for Refugee Immunisation Monitoring and Education (PRIME), please contact the project team at or call 03 9217 2100 to speak to our Arabic speaking Community Liaison Officer.
