Proportion of Indigenous children who are regular clients, aged:

  • 12 months to less than 24 months;
  • 24 months to less than 36 months;
  • 60 months to less than 72 months;

and who are 'fully immunised'.

‘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.

Presented as a percentage.

This indicator is calculated separately for each age milestone.

'Fully immunised' status is determined in accordance with the National Immunisation Program Schedule (DoH 2013). 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.
