Updates to the Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition

The CEO of NHMRC has approved updates to the Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition under section 14A of the National Health and Medical Research Act 1992.

The Australian Immunisation Handbook provides clinical information for Australian immunisation providers on the safest and most effective use of vaccines, new vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases in Australia. The updates relate to the infant pneumococcal vaccination schedule and are available on the Immunise Australia website.

The revised Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition is planned for release by the Department of health during December 2017.
