New Arrival Refugee Immunisation Program (NARI) Program poster to promote the services of the New Arrival Refugee Immunisation Program
New arrival refugees and humanitarian entrants to Australia may not be fully immunised in line with the Australian National Immunisation Program schedule. This places the refugee and the community at risk of some vaccine preventable diseases. The NARI program offers specific vaccines to newly arrived refugees in South Australia.
Under the National Immunisation Program, all refugees and humanitarian entrants are able to receive free catch-up vaccinations.
NARI providers will accept referrals from your doctor and other health professionals. The immunisation services include:
For a list of vaccines included under the NARI program refer to the catch-up immunisation table on the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care website.
Identified immunisation providers in the main local government areas where refugees settle. See the Immunisation services page for a list of local government and health services that can provide NARI vaccines.
There is no cost for either the vaccine or the vaccine administration for those who have arrived in Australia under the Australian Government Humanitarian Scheme and attend a NARI clinic.
