Immunisation protects us like a shield

This short animation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families explains how vaccination provides protection against diseases that can make little ones very sick.


We all want our bubbas and littlies to be healthy.

That’s why routine childhood immunisation is important.

It’s like a strong shield that helps protect our kids from diseases that can be dangerous,  

like measles and whooping cough.

These diseases can make little ones very sick and can cause long-term problems, or even death.

Your doctor or health worker can answer any questions you might have about different vaccines.

They can let you know which vaccines your child needs and when to get them, to help keep them  safe.

Let’s help keep the next generation of us mob protected.

Have a yarn to your doctor or health worker about free routine childhood immunisation or visit the website for more information.

It’s just one more way we keep our little ones safe.
