New immunisation clinic a boost for growing community

17 January 2023

Ipswich City Council Community Immunisation Clinics will start again in February 2023.

The first clinic will open on Wednesday February 1, from 9am to 11am, at the South Ripley Providence Community Hub.

Community, Culture, Arts and Sports Committee Chairperson Cr Andrew Fechner said vaccines played an important role in public health.

“Immunisations are offered free of charge to school students and any eligible person at any of the council’s community clinics,” Cr Fechner said.

“Vaccinations given at these clinics are per the National Immunisation Program Queensland.

“They are an important tool in your health and the community’s health.”

Residents do not need to make an appointment to attend a clinic, but are asked to bring their Medicare card and the child’s immunisation record book.

The South Ripley Providence Community Hub clinics will be held every first Wednesday of the month.

This clinic will also offer catchups for eligible students in the School Immunisation Program.

Other clinic locations are at the Ipswich Children’s Library and the Springfield Central Library.
