Vaccinations

Deakin Medical Centres on campus offer a range of course related vaccinations, a seasonal flu vaccination program and a comprehensive range of travel vaccinations.

How to make an appointment

It's quick and easy to book a vaccination appointment by contacting your nearest Deakin Medical Centre or by using the online appointment system.

For travel health please book an appointment with a doctor, for flu or course related vaccinations please book appointments with the campus nurse.

What to bring

Please ensure you bring along any vaccination records you have from your local doctor or local council office, these records are very important.

Costs of vaccinations

A price list for the vaccinations is available at Student Life or you can discuss this with the doctor or nurse. We endeavour to keep the cost to a minimum to encourage students and staff to access vaccinations and we understand that is a requirement for many Faculty of Health Students.

Immunisation history

You can contact the Deakin Medical Centre at your campus to ask for your immunisation history, provided that they were done at a Deakin Medical Centre.

If you're off campus, you can send an email to askanurse@deakin.edu.au

A health organisation may refuse to accept a student for placement if the student's immunisation status is not satisfactory to the health organisation.
