Adult Vaccinations and Immunisations
Robina Town Medical Centre offer a range of adult vaccinations.
The QLD Immunisation Schedule outlines the routine vaccinations recommended and funded for Queensland residents.
Child Immunisations – make a booking with your GP so a child health check can be carried out prior to seeing our nurses for the immunisation.
School Immunisation Program – if this is missed during the school program we can administer the necessary vaccination in our clinic.
Please note not all adult vaccines are funded by QLD Health. Some incur a cost and are only free to particular age groups.
Immunisation is still relevant in adulthood as on-going protection is required for preventable diseases. Even if vaccinations were given in childhood, adults may need booster doses to maintain immunity. There are a range of adult vaccines available at our practice.

- Whooping Cough (also known as Pertussis)
- Influenza / Flu

Vaccinations and Pregnancy
If you are planning to become pregnant it is highly recommended to check which vaccinations you may need before you become pregnant. Whooping Cough vaccination is strongly recommended for all expecting parents and other adults such as grandparents who will be in close contact with a new baby. Newborns are at risk of serious complications if they contract whooping cough.
Pregnant women can have a free whooping cough vaccine in their third trimester. This provides optimal protection for new babies. The Flu/Influenza vaccine can also be given.
We also offer Travel Vaccinations.
