Vaccines are safe

This short animation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families explains that vaccines have been carefully tested, to protect us from diseases.


One way to help our kids stay healthy is with free childhood immunisations.

Carefully tested vaccines have meant that over generations, serious diseases like polio and diphtheria, have almost completely disappeared in Australia thanks to lots of us getting vaccinated.

That’s why routine childhood immunisation is important.

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.
