Texts To Help Protect Our Community

With the majority of people now carrying a mobile phone on them, a simple text message reminder can help people remember the most important activities.

Bass Coast Shire Council provides an immunisation service for children in order to protect the community from contagious disease.

“To complement Council’s immunisation service, it now also provide a mobile phone texting service to send reminders for mums, dads and guardians who have missed vaccination sessions for their children,” Mayor, Cr Neil Rankine, said.

“Texting is a modern tool that allows us to provide quick and convenient reminders that immunisations are due, as letters can often be lost or misplaced.  

“Completion of the vaccine course ensures strong protection for both the child and the wider community from disease.”
