Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation team wins Vice-Chancellor's award

Congratulations to the Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation (SKAI) team on its recent success at The University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor's awards. The SKAI communication package received the Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Research Engagement and Innovation.

The SKAI team pictured at the awards ceremony: Professor Kristine Macartney, Professor Lyndal Trevena, Dr Nina Berry, Dr Pen Robinson, Professor Julie Leask and Nicola O’Hanlon.


Some parents have questions or concerns about immunisation, and healthcare providers are a trusted source of information. The SKAI communication package has been developed to support parents and healthcare professionals. 

The SKAI parent website provides a range of resources and information for parents and carers of babies and young children, designed to support conversations about childhood vaccination. This website contains independently assessed, reliable information for parents, including information about the vaccines included on the National Immunisation Program for their children between birth and 4 years of age. It also provides answers to the common questions parents ask about vaccination.
