Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective method to protect against preventable diseases.

Disease has less of a chance to spread if the majority of the population are immunised.

Over 90% of children are fully immunised in the Brisbane South PHN region, which is below the national immunisation target of 95%. Immunisation rates remain even lower in both the culturally and linguistically diverse, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. For more information you can head to the Department of Health.

What are the recommended immunisations

To ensure that every immunisation is as effective as possible, they should be performed on the due dates as outlined in the National Immunisations Program Schedule for Queensland.
