This report presents summary results from the 2004 Adult Vaccination Survey (formerly the Influenza Vaccine Survey), which includes questions on both influenza and, for the first time, pneumococcal vaccination. The influenza questions are part of the review of the National Influenza Vaccine Program for Older Australians (aged 65 years or older). The pneumococcal questions support the setting of a baseline for monitoring pneumococcal vaccination, anticipating the evaluation of the National Pneumococcal Vaccination Program for Older Australians, which began on 1 January 2005.The survey was conducted in October 2004 and included 7,500 participants aged 18 years and over.
