Scheduled immunisations for your child are free. See the Ministry of Health Immunisation Schedule for more information, including the HPV vaccine for girls aged 12. Contact your GP or family doctor to make an appointment.
Immunisations will be recorded in your child's Well Child/Tamariki Ora Health Book and on the National Immunisation Register. If you are not sure whether your child is up-to-date with their immunisations, contact your GP or family doctor to find out.
The IMAC website provides more information regarding vaccine-preventable diseases and the risks and benefits of immunisation.
The Ministry of Health also provides information for 16 and 17 year olds to check they're up to date with their childhood immunisations.
