Vaccinations

Deakin Medical Centres offer a range of vaccinations on campus.

Flu vaccinations

Flu vaccinations are now available at all campuses. It’s easy to book your appointment online – just choose your campus, click the green ‘book appointment’ button and select the ‘flu vaccination’ option. If you’re unable to book online, please keep checking availability as we may be waiting on stock.

Students

Your flu vaccination is free if you’re:

  • A student living on residences (register your interest at DRS reception)
  • An international student who holds OSHC cover (regardless of who your provider is).

Otherwise, it’s just $20 – a small price to pay for your health and peace of mind.

Staff

Your flu vaccination is free if you show your staff ID card when you attend your appointment.

During your appointment, you must wear a face mask. If on the day of your appointment you’re not feeling well, you’ve been tested for COVID-19 or you’re a confirmed contact, please do not attend.

COVID-19 vaccinations

Burwood and Waurn Ponds Medical Centres are approved COVID-19 vaccine providers however, appointments are currently unavailable as we focus on administering the flu vaccine.

General vaccination information

How do I make an appointment?

It's quick and easy to book a vaccination appointment online. Should you have any problems booking an appointment online please call 9244 5577.

Travel health appointments must be made with a doctor. Flu or course-related vaccination appointments can be made with a campus nurse.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

It is important that you bring with you any vaccination records you have from your local doctor or local council office.

How much will my vaccination cost?

You can obtain a current vaccination price list from any of our Health & Wellbeing Centres. We endeavour to keep costs to a minimum so that students can afford to access vaccinations, especially as it is a requirement for many Faculty of Health students.

How do I know what immunisations I have had?

If you are a client of Deakin Medical Centre, you can request a copy of your immunisation history however, the record will only show immunisations administered by Deakin Medical Centre. Immunisation history requests can be made via email to askanurse@deakin.edu.au, in person at your local Health & Wellbeing Centre or by phone on 9244 5577.

Do you offer course-related vaccinations?

Do you offer travel vaccinations and how do I know what to get?

Travel health advice is available from all Deakin Medical Centres. If you plan to travel, please ensure you see a doctor about vaccinations at least six weeks prior to departure. Information on vaccinations is available on the Smart Traveller website. Deakin Medical Centres offer a full range of travel vaccinations, and the Burwood Campus centre is also Yellow Fever accredited.
