Worldwide, vaccination is a very successful and cost-effective population health intervention. The Australian Government provides funded vaccines against 17 diseases to eligible people through the National Immunisation Program. This series of fact sheets and accompanying visualisations provide information about these diseases and their impact in Australia, including the number of cases reported, hospitalisations and deaths.
Nationally, 94% of 1 and 5 year olds, and 90.5% of 2 year olds, were fully immunised in 2017
Vaccination reduces hospitalisations and deaths, especially in the most vulnerable (the very young and very old)
Several vaccine-preventable diseases are now rare in Australia as a result of high immunisation rates
More than 12,000 cases of whooping cough were notified to public health authorities in 2017
