Immunization is a global health and development success story, saving millions of lives every year. Vaccines reduce risks of getting a disease by working with your body’s natural defences to build protection. When you get a vaccine, your immune system responds. Vaccines are a safe and necessary part of keeping you well and healthy.
Our team at Mount Martha is highly trained in both normal and travel vaccines.
We now have vaccines to prevent more than 20 life-threatening diseases relevant for all ages .
Immunization currently prevents 2-3 million deaths every year from diseases like diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, influenza and measles.
Immunization is a key component of primary health care both here and overseas and is critical to the prevention and control of infectious-disease outbreaks.
Yet despite tremendous progress, far too many people around the world – including nearly 20 million infants each year – have insufficient access to vaccines. In some countries, progress has stalled or even reversed, and there is a real risk that complacency will undermine past achievements.
Here in Australia we are privileged to be able to provide and support you and your families health through providing immunisations.
