Comments:

'Fully immunised' status is determined in accordance with the National Immunisation Program Schedule. The childhood vaccinations essential to be considered 'fully immunised' include:

  • DTPa (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis)
  • HiB (haemophilus influenzae type B)
  • Polio
  • Hep B (hepatitis B)
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella).

A child is considered 'fully immunised' if they have received the following vaccinations by the specified age milestones:

  • At 12 months: 3 doses DTPa; 3 doses Polio; 2 or 3 doses HiB; 2 or 3 doses Hep B
  • At 24 months: 3 doses DTPa; 3 doses Polio; 3 or 4 doses HiB; 3 doses Hep B; 1 dose MMR
  • At 60 months: 4 doses DTPa; 4 doses Polio; 2 doses MMR.
