Australia’s trusted independent immunisation experts

Coverage data

The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) records vaccinations given to people in Australia across the whole life span. NCIRS uses AIR data to calculate vaccine coverage estimates for all children and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

Coverage and evaluation reports

NCIRS produces annual national immunisation coverage reports to highlight important trends and issues in vaccine coverage in Australia. These reports provide a detailed summary of vaccine coverage at standard milestone ages, coverage for vaccines not included in standard coverage assessments, timeliness of vaccination, vaccine coverage for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, small area vaccine coverage data, and adolescent vaccine coverage.

NCIRS also undertakes program evaluation to understand the successes and challenges associated with the implementation of a vaccination program and the impact of the program on disease burden.

Refer to Vaccine coverage, Program evaluation and Reports sections of the website to access these and other reports.
