Immunisation - City of Greater Dandenong

This service is for newly arrived families (migrants and refugees) to present their child’s vaccination records to be assessed, and then a vaccination 'catch-up' schedule will be determined by a registered nurse. All newly arrived families who have had any vaccinations overseas must attend this specific Monday morning service, as this 'catch-up' advice cannot be provided at a general immunisation session.

Wearing a seatbelt doubles your chances of surviving a serious crash yet despite the benefits shown by road safety research, time and time again too few people buckle up their seatbelt.

My Licence - The Driver's Handbook - Seatbelts

One third of all drivers and passengers killed and 9% of vehicle occupants seriously injured are not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Many of these deaths and injuries could have been prevented, or be less severe, if the people were wearing a seatbelt. Some of these passengers were children. A restraint or seatbelt will not work at all if it hasn't been correctly fastened. Buckle up - and you double your chance of surviving a crash. The severity of injury received in crashes, especially injuries to the face and head, is significantly lower if occupants wear their seatbelts.
