attaching the immunisation schedule, take it to the doc and ask him to give any additional once if required, take a chart from him that corresponds with this schedule, which has been given and which has not been given.

your wife will have to go to the nearest mother & child /family centre, the details will be available on teh council's website. take an appointment before going, they do not entertain people walking in. you need a blue book that has teh child's records, the vaccines are free if you go to the hospital or to the immunisation camps organised by the council every now adn then.

you will have to get the vaccine updated in her file online (centrelink), a few missing vaccines can result in no childcare rebate from centrelink or problem during school admission

the attached immunisation chart is from whitehorse in melbourne, that is wehre i stay.
