Deakin Medical Centres offer a range of vaccinations on campus.
Deakin Medical Centres administer and offer advice on course-related vaccinations, and most vaccines are available on site at a reasonable cost.
It's important to ensure you bring copies of your vaccination history and any other health information to your appointment.
The course-related immunisation process may take 3–6 weeks to complete depending on your vaccination history and antibodies, so book your appointment as early as possible to avoid delays.
Please note, any health organisation can refuse to accept a student for placement if their immunisation status is not satisfactory.
If you’re a conscientious objector to vaccinations, we suggest you seek advice through a course adviser.
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, most of which are available on site at a reasonable cost.
