Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) statistics

Overview

The major functions of the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (the ACIR) are to:

  • provide an accurate measure of the immunisation coverage of children in Australia under 7 years of age
  • provide an effective management tool for monitoring immunisation coverage and service delivery.

A range of reports has been developed to inform the general public about the current operation of the ACIR and immunisation in Australia. Authorised immunisation providers can access detailed reports via the secured area of this site.

The following ACIR coverage reports show the percentage of children vaccinated with highest level appropriate for their age group. As at 31 December 2013, the immunisation coverage assessment for the 12-15mth cohort has been amended to include Pneumococcal in the assessment of Fully Immunised.

Percentage of children 12-15 months of age (age calculated at 31 December 2013) assessed as fully immunised. Date of processing 31 March 2014.
