2010 Annual immunisation coverage report

Apr 2013 - News

The most recent data on the uptake of vaccines available to Australian children under the National Immunisation Program (NIP) have recently been published in the 2010 annual immunisation coverage report.

The yearly report analyses data available through the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) and comments on the coverage of NIP listed vaccines at the different age milestones and trends in timeliness of vaccine delivery. Vaccine uptake is also assessed with respects to Indigenous status and geographical locations.

The 2010 report demonstrates the success of the Australian Childhood Immunisation Program, with national coverage for all vaccines recommended for children at 12 months and 24 months of age, exceeding the Immunise Australia coverage targets of 90%.

However, the report also identifies areas where immunisation coverage can be improved. A disparity still exists in vaccine coverage between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children, especially with regards to timeliness of vaccine delivery. A number of geographical areas have also been identified throughout Australia where immunisation coverage is lower than the national average.

The full report is available online in the March 2013 issue of Communicable Disease Intelligence (CDI) on the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing website. The report is prepared by the Surveillance team at the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance.
