New campaign targets childhood vaccination rates

The Australian Government has recently launched the ‘One more way you keep them safe’ campaign, encouraging parents and carers to ensure their children’s routine vaccinations are up to date.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on global immunisation efforts, resulting in a backlog of missed vaccinations worldwide.

Australia has a strong National Immunisation Program (NIP), however recent data shows that routine childhood immunisation coverage rates have declined over the past two years.

For the best protection, it’s important that children receive their free routine vaccines in line with the NIP schedule and on time, every time.
