Employers can help protect their staff from serious and preventable diseases by booking workplace immunisation sessions.
If you book a workplace visit for your staff, we will provide you with guidelines, factsheets and consent cards.
You can enjoy a number of benefits by offering workplace immunisation to your employees, including:
We visit around 60 local workplaces each year to protect workers with a range of vaccines. This program mainly immunises people with the influenza vaccine, but other vaccines are available and can be arranged.
Vaccines must be confirmed 5 days before the immunisation visit, and an invoice will be raised based on the confirmed number.
|Clinic cost and fees|
|1-20 staff||$470 flat fee||
|21-75 staff||$24 per person|
|Free flu||You won't be charged for:||
You will only be charged extra if:
Staff who will be immunised should bring their completed consent card and any immunisation history they have.
Each staff member will receive an individual record card of their vaccination on the day.
All encounters of vaccinations are uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register , and you will be given a complete listing of all staff vaccinated for your occupational, health and safety records.
Staff who are absent on the day of our visit can attend one of our public immunisation sessions until 30 October to have the vaccine. They can make a booking here: Public immunisation sessions - Whittlesea Council
This year both influenza and COVID-19 vaccines will be available in Australia. It is important to plan vaccination timing to give the best protection against both of these potentially serious diseases.
An interval of at least 14 days between a dose of influenza vaccine and a dose of COVID-19 vaccine is advised. This 14-day interval is the same for either the Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty) vaccine or the University of Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
When scheduling influenza and COVID-19 vaccinations please be advised:
Please note, Council is not providing the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines are being made available to people in phases as part of the Australian Government vaccine program.
To find out which phase you are in, you can use the Australian Government Department of Health eligibility checker. The eligibility checker will tell you if you are eligible now and connect you with a vaccine provider in your area.
If you are not eligible yet, you can register to receive an email or SMS notification. You can also check your eligibility, find a vaccine provider or register by calling 1800 020 080.
