Computation description:Help on this term

Count of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 50 and over and who are immunised against influenza.

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an Australian Government Department of Health-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 Department of Health-funded primary health-care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

For Indigenous people aged 50 and over, the Australian Immunisation Handbook (DoH 2017) recommends immunisation against influenza. An Indigenous person aged 50 and over is immunised against influenza if they have received an influenza vaccine within the previous year.
