The Australian Government Department of Health has launched a new immunisation beta site, which is specially designed to make key information for public health more accessible, easier to find and easier to understand.
The site provides facts to help protect the most vulnerable people in the population from vaccine-preventable diseases, and inform everyone about vaccination requirements and their impact.
It provides resources used by schools and families, such as the National Immunisation Program Schedule. It will also host the Australian Immunisation Handbook, which is used by health professionals. The new site makes evidence-based information about this important issue more accessible for consumers.
