Are you a new student? Do you need vaccines and serology for your degree?
Book an appointment with the nurse to discuss mandatory vaccine and serology requirements for your degree. All initial course immunisations must be seen by the nurse in the first instance, who will then organise an appointment with the doctor.
Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are common and increasing in Australia, including Queensland.
