SKAI – Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation: Resources for parents
A series of five Q&A fact sheets addressing the five concerns most commonly expressed by Australian parents are available from the Immunise Australia website.
- How are vaccines shown to be safe?
- How do vaccines affect immunity?
- Why is the schedule the way it is?
- What about autism?
- What is in vaccines?
These fact sheets were developed by the SARAH Collaboration. SARAH stands for Support And Resources to Assist Hesitant parents with vaccination.
In consultation with parents and health professionals, the SARAH Collaboration are building a suite of resources for health professionals and parents or other carers of babies and young children, designed to support conversations about childhood vaccination.
Further information on the SARAH project is available on the Social research pages of our website.
