The new ‘Get the Facts about Immunisation’ campaign explains the benefits of childhood vaccination for the individual and the community, addresses common misconceptions and encourages parents and carers to complete their child’s vaccinations on time.

The campaign includes personal stories from families who have lost their babies to vaccine preventable diseases, and an information video featuring immunologist, Professor Ian Frazer.
