A range of 'Get the facts - protect your mob' resources have been developed as part of the Department of Health's childhood immunisation campaign.

Phase 3 of the Childhood Immunisation Education Campaign – ‘Get the facts about immunisation’ launched earlier this year to encourage Australian parents and carers to get their kids vaccinated.

A key focus of the campaign is to promote vaccination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, by sharing the benefits of childhood vaccination and encouraging timely completion of the childhood immunisation schedule.

A range of 'Get the facts - protect your mob' resources have been developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, which you can access below.

When a child is immunised, it helps to protect them as well as the whole community from serious disease. It’s important that children receive their vaccines on time, every time, for the best protection. If a child is late they should catch up as soon as possible.
