The Vaccination for Our Mob report is based on the NCIRS report on vaccine preventable diseases and vaccination coverage in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2016–2019, published in the Department of Health and Aged Care Communicable Diseases Intelligence journal in 2023.
The purpose of the Vaccination for Our Mob report is to provide a summary of the NCIRS report in a format that is accessible for health professionals and community-based workers. It is intended to highlight the positive impacts the National Immunisation Program (NIP) has had on the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people in Australia, as well as some of the continuing challenges relating to vaccine preventable diseases and vaccine coverage.
In acknowledgement of feedback on the previous Vaccination for Our Mob report 2011–2015, changes have been made to the format and design of the 2016-2019 report, including the addition of a clear outline of what the report does and does not include, what information is presented, the addition of links and resources and digitisation of the report.
