The data visualisation below provides information about selected vaccine-preventable diseases (VPD) and their impact in Australia by statistical area level 3 (SA3) in 2014–2016.
As the number of cases for many VPD are very small, in most cases it is not possible to present data at the SA3 level. Therefore data are only presented for 3 diseases:
The data for whooping cough and pneumococcal disease include hospitalisations and notifications among people of all ages. Data for mumps include notifications among people of all ages. Data for hospitalisations are not reported for mumps due to very small numbers.
The maps show:
Note: For pneumococcal disease, notifications data are for invasive disease only. Hospitalisations data may include cases of non-invasive pneumococcal pneumonia.
In interpreting these data it is important to note that changes in notifications over time may not solely reflect changes in disease prevalence or incidence. Depending on the disease, changes in testing policies, screening programs including the preferential testing of high risk populations, the use of less invasive and more sensitive diagnostic tests, and periodic awareness campaigns may influence the number of notifications that occur each year.
The data visusalisation below provides information on vaccination coverage by SA3 and includes detail by age group and over time. More information can be found in Immunisation rates for children in 2016–17.
