Vaccination is the most effective way to protect your baby against disease during pregnancy, and in the first few months after birth.


On these pages, you’ll find information about the recommended vaccines, and about the diseases that can cause harm to mothers and their babies. The content of this website was first published on the MumBubVax website (now archived), hosted by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. 

What vaccines are recommended for you and your newborn?

The National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule is a series of immunisations recommended for all Australians at specific times from birth through to adulthood. All vaccines listed in the NIP Schedule are free. The NIP Schedule was last updated on 6 February 2023.
