ATAGI releases first annual immunisation statement

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has released its 2021 annual statement on immunisation. This is the first publication in this series.

The statement highlights the key successes, trends and challenges in the use of vaccines and control of vaccine preventable diseases in Australia in 2020. It also signals ATAGI’s priority actions for addressing key issues for 2021 and beyond.

ATAGI provides evidence-based advice to the Australian government on immunisation policies, programs and future research priorities. This includes identifying and prioritising gaps in the immunisation landscape to improve:

  • the impact of immunisation programs
  • confidence in immunisation programs, as well as the vaccines used in the programs
  • equity in access to, and outcomes of, immunisation programs.
