What happens if my child misses a routine vaccine?

You can visit your healthcare practitioner or GP who will determine if your child requires a catch-up immunisation. This means your child may then follow a slightly different schedule to the National Immunisation Program (NIP).

Speak with a healthcare professional about your child’s vaccination needs.
