National Immunisation Program Schedule

The National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule is a series of immunisations given at specific times throughout your life. The immunisations range from birth through to adulthood.

All vaccines listed in the NIP Schedule are free.

It is important to understand what vaccinations your child needs and when they should receive them. View the NIP Schedule to see which vaccines are provided free for children from birth to four years of age.

People at a higher risk of complications from vaccine preventable diseases can get additional vaccines on the NIP Schedule.

For further details about specific vaccinations and the diseases they protect your children from – see the summary of Childhood Vaccine Preventable Diseases table
