PAPAMOA PINES MEDICAL CENTRE STRONGLY SUPPORTS THE VACCINATION OF ALL CHILDREN IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NATIONAL IMMUNISATION SCHEDULE. Visit www.immune.org
Without immunisation your child can infect others: unimmunised people can pass disease on to babies who are too young to be fully immunised. Unimmunised people may be a risk to children and adults who can't be immunised for medical reasons these include people with leukaemia and other cancers who are receiving chemotherapy, radiotherapy or large doses of corticosteroids.
Without immunisations your child may have to be excluded at times from school or childcare during a disease outbreak which may cause hardship for the parent and the child.
We strongly encourage you to immunise your child. Your final decision affects not only the health of your child but also the rest of your family, the health of your child's friends and their families, classmates, neighbours and community.
