We offer family-friendly public clinics.
Council has engaged Health and Immunisation Management Services (HAIMS) to undertake the immunisation programs on behalf of the City of West Torrens.
HAIMS has extensive experience in conducting Council immmunisation programs. Our clinics will continue to provide a quality public health service in accordance with the guidelines set by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
Immunisation enquiries can be directed to HAIMS between 9am - 5pm weekdays on telephone (08) 8152 0363, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website: haims.com.au.

Free catch-up vaccines
For all individuals aged 10 - 19 years
All individuals aged 10 - 19 years will need an assessment of their immunisation status to clarify their vaccination history; check the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). Information will be entered into the AIR if it has not been recorded and catch-up vaccines provided if needed.
Refugees and other humanitarian entrants aged 10 - 19 will need an assessment of their immunsation status. Once an assessment of any existing vaccination records and other relevant clinical information is undertaken a catch-p plan will be developed. The objective of a catch-up vaccination is to complete a course of age appropriate vaccinations and provide optimal protection as quickly as possible.
For refugees and other humanitarian entrants aged 20 years and over (ongoing)
All refugees and other humanitarian entrants aged 20 years and over will need an assessment of their immunisation status. Once an assessment of any existing vaccination records and other relevant clinical information is undertaken a catch-up plan will be developed. The objective of a catch-up vaccination is to complete a course of age appropriate vaccinations and provide optimal protection as quickly as possible. Contact HAIMS.
For non-Medicare card holders immunisation histories will need to be reviewed offsite before immunisation can occur. These need to be translated and legible and emailed to email@example.com
