Children, adolescents and adults are eligible to receive some vaccines for free under the National Immunisation Program. Some vaccines are also funded by the Victorian Government.
Vaccines are given at certain ages, or for people in certain at-risk groups, according to the schedule and eligibility criteria.
Rotavirus vaccine (RotaTeq®) must be given within a strict time frame.
The vaccine history timeline shows when vaccines were introduced and major changes to the immunisation schedule over time.
