Posted Monday 18 March, 02:29pm

Ararat Rural City Council’s Maternal Child Health service will hold its monthly free immunisation session next Wednesday, March 20.

Held on the third Wednesday of every month from 10.30am to 12.30pm, the session is available to babies and children aged 0 to 4.

Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison said the session was open to all parents and there was no need to book.

“The immunisation service is offered free to all Ararat Rural City children,” he said.

“Parents are encouraged to take their little ones when they are due for their next round of immunisations, and don’t forget to bring your child’s health record along for our Maternal Child Health Nurses to update.”

Ararat Rural City Council’s Maternal Child Health Nurses Therese Arnott (pictured) and Brooke Jess run the public immunisation sessions each month, which are held at the Ararat Maternal and Child Health Centre, 60 High Street, Ararat.

If you live in the Lake Bolac area, Ms Arnott and Ms Jess also immunise on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, by appointment only.

Parents can phone 53521813 for more information or to make an appointment for Lake Bolac.
