NCIRS fact sheets
On this page:
The following fact sheets on aspects of vaccination have been developed by NCIRS for immunisation providers and interested members of the community.
The fact sheets published by NCIRS are produced by the Policy and Surveillance sections of NCIRS. They are written by NCIRS staff with relevant expertise and are reviewed and approved by the appropriate senior staff of the Centre. Input and/or review by external content experts is sought routinely.
You will need the Adobe reader as all fact sheets are in PDF.
Please note: The 2015 annual update of the 10th Edition Australian Immunisation Handbook has been published. This update includes changes to some clinical recommendations. We are in the process of reviewing our fact sheets so they are up-to-date with the latest national advice on the use of vaccines in Australia. In the interim, you can find the 2015 Handbook update on the Immunise Australia website.
