Immunisation

The Immunise Australia Program aims to increase national immunisation rates by funding free vaccination programs, administering the Australian Childhood Immunisation register and communicating information about immunisation to the general public and health professionals.

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them in the community. Immunisation not only protects individuals, but also others in the community, by reducing the spread of disease.

The Immunise Australia Program implements the National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule which currently includes vaccines against a total of 16 diseases. The Australian Government provides funding for:
