Count of Indigenous 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'.

Presented as a number.

This indicator is calculated separately for each age milestone.

'Fully immunised' status is determined in accordance with the National Immunisation Program Schedule (DoH 2019). 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.

These immunisations reflect those required at the time this indicator was developed and may not reflect the latest National Immunisation Program (NIP) schedule.
