The Strathbogie Shire supports immunisation programs run by the State and Commonwealth Governments on the Australian National Immunisation Program Schedule.
Due to the current COVID-19 social distancing requirements in place, all immunisation services will be by appointment only. This applies to all scheduled Council Immunisation Sessions, including Strathbogie Shire.
If you or your child requires vaccination at one of Council’s immunisation sessions, please contact Wodonga Council, which is the service provider for Strathbogie Shire, to make an appointment on 1800 655 360. The Council will endeavour to accommodate everyone with an appointment. Please note that only one parent/guardian should accompany a child into the immunisation session.
