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. See Immunisation for infants and children for information on what free vaccinations are available for children aged 0 to 4 to protect them against serious diseases.

People at a higher risk of complications from vaccine preventable diseases can get additional vaccines on the NIP Schedule. See more information about when to get vaccinated.

For further details about specific vaccinations and the diseases they protect your children from – see Immunisations for infants and children
