Immunisation schedule and vaccine eligibility criteria

Infants, children, adolescents, adults and special risk groups are eligible to receive some vaccines for free under the National Immunisation Program (NIP). The Victorian Government also funds the provision of some vaccines that are not included on the NIP.

Vaccines are given at certain ages, or for people in certain at-risk groups, or for catch-up according to the schedule and eligibility criteria.

The vaccine history timeline shows when vaccines were introduced and major changes to the immunisation schedule over time.
