Sydney Pregnancy, Babies and Children’s Expo

Our message of immunisation to protect babies and expectant mother’s continues this weekend as our Light For Riley stand takes prime position at the Sydney Pregnancy Babies and Children’s Expo.  The stand will be attended to by our amazing volunteers who will be handing out free immunisation information packs to all attendees.

We welcome you to come and have a chat as we work towards educating expectant and new parents on the importance of immunisation. We look forward to seeing you there!

Melbourne Pregnancy and Babies Expo 2016

A big thank you to all of the incredible immunisation nurses who volunteered their time this weekend to vaccinate 438 expecting parents against whooping cough at the Melbourne Pregnancy & Babies expo on the weekend. You have helped to protect many little lives from this nasty disease!

Unfortunately, in other parts of Australia, many Dads-to-be (and partners of pregnant women) are unable to get their hands on these boosters. They are not provided for free in most states (except VIC & NT), and therefore expectant Dads are forced to try their luck at obtaining stock privately, which is difficult due to major shortages around the country.

Parents want to do the right thing and vaccinate themselves to protect their vulnerable newborns. I hope more can be done by health departments around the country to ensure that these boosters can be more easily accessed.
