Proportion of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 50 years and over and who are immunised against influenza.
‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an OATSIH-funded primary health care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the OATSIH-funded primary health care service at least 3 times in 2 years.
For Indigenous people aged 50 years and over, the Australian Immunisation Handbook (DoHA 2008) recommends immunisation against influenza. An Indigenous person aged 50 years and over is immunised against influenza if they have received an influenza vaccine in the previous year.
