    Default Vax rates per state/area?

    I'm hoping Atropos or beebs or one of the other clever girls who regularly post links to vax stuff can help?? I'm useless at finding stuff on the net.

    After reading that article about that Monbulk woman, and mention of Yarra Ranges area being second lowest vax rates in Vic (which is a bit too close to home) i'm now wondering what vax rates are like in my area.

    Anyone know where i can find out?

    I was wondering this too! We're reasonably close to yarra Ranges and it makes me think again on taking my newborn to play centres to meet up with friends.

    I can't find a link at the moment .. Ask your local GP or nurse .. They are pretty knowledgable in this area

    This is a good one there is also a Medicare one state by state and lots of press on it all at the moment
