The Immunise Australia Program should be referred to for all information regarding vaccine preventable diseases in Australia.
Further information for immunisation providers is available from NSW Health.
Immunisation schedules including catch-up recommendations and vaccine information can be accessed via The Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition.
A useful Immunisation Calculator for children has been developed by SA Health.
Consideration for Refugees:
The National Immunisation Program allows for free catch-up vaccines for all refugees and humanitarian entrants aged 20 years and over (ongoing), and all individuals aged 10 to 19 years.
If your practice is in SWSLHD, the Public Health Unit can assist you with immunisation catch-up schedules to be used with those patients partially vaccinated or unvaccinated.
If you are in another LHD, contact your Public Health Unit for similar assistance.
