DOH - Childhood Immunisation Coverage Annualised (%) (SA3) October 2016-March 2018

This dataset presents the footprint of annualised childhood immunisation coverage in Australia for all children. The data shows the percentage of children immunised against hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, haemophilus influenzae type b, polio, measles, mumps and rubella, pneumococcal, varicella and meningococcal C, as well as children fully immunised at age 12 months, 24 months and 60 months according to the National Immunisation Program Schedule. The data spans three years between October 2016-March 2018 and is aggregated to Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3) geographic areas from the 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

The data was sourced from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR), which is administered by the Australian Government Department of Human Services. The AIR is a national register that records immunisations given to children to help parents and guardians keep track of their children's immunisations.
