Population group age from:Children: Persons aged 5 years
Adults: Indigenous Australians aged 50 years or over; non-Indigenous Australians aged 65 years or over
Computation description:

Fully vaccinated 5 year old children: Children aged 60—63 months vaccinated against hepatitis B, diptheria, tetanus and pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b, poliomyelitis, pneumococcal disease, rotavirus, measles, mumps, rubella, meningococcal C, and varicella.

For Indigenous children in Qld, WA, SA and NT, fully vaccinated is defined as vaccinated against all the conditions listed above, plus hepatitis A.

Analysis by remoteness and SEIFA Indicator of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on usual residence of person.

Report by each disease vaccinated against.

Adults: Rates directly age-standardised.

Presented as a percentage.

Computation:

100 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)

Calculated separately for children, Indigenous Australians aged 50 years or over, and non-Indigenous Australians aged 65 years or over.

Numerator:

Children: Number of children aged 5 years who have been fully vaccinated according to the National Immunisation Program Schedule.

Adults: Number of Indigenous Australians aged 50 years or over, and non-Indigenous Australians aged 65 years or over, who have been vaccinated for influenza and pneumococcal disease.
