Although the percentage of children fully immunised in Australia is high, rates are not uniform across the country and there are significant variations at the local level. Low immunisation coverage rates persist across many local areas, exposing vulnerable children to vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles and whooping cough. The report looks at child immunisation rates across the 31 Primary Health Network areas as well as more than 300 smaller local areas (SA3) and Australian postcodes. Results are available via Excel downloads for SA4s (which are larger than SA3s, with just over 80 across Australia). A new interactive tool is also available to explore the data.
This report was first published on the MyHealthyCommunities website.
Note: Since publication in February 2016, figures have been revised following updates to methods and revised information from states and territories. Please see Immunisation rates for children in 2015–16 for the revised results.
