Get the facts about immunisation

13 September 2017

Immunisations are a simple, safe and effective way of protecting against harmful diseases.

The Department of Health is running a Get the Facts campaign to help you understand immunisation and why it’s important.

You can get the facts about:

  • what immunisation is and how it works
  • vaccine safety
  • why you should immunise your child
  • how to immunise your child
  • the National Immunisation Program Schedule
  • how to tell if your child’s immunisations are up to date
  • how vaccinating your child protects them and other children too

Check your child’s Immunisation history statement to see if their immunisations are up to date.

Check if immunisation affects your family payment such as Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement, Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.
