The digital Australian Immunisation Handbook is now available online.

Health professionals can find the most up-to-date recommendations for the use of vaccines in Australia. This will ensure patients receive the best possible advice regarding vaccine preventable diseases.

The digital Handbook is easier to navigate and search. Visual guides have been created to make complex schedules and immunisation practices easier to understand and follow. Recommendations can also now be sorted by disease, age and risk factor.

If you are working offline, relevant sections of the Handbook can be downloaded to devices or printed.

Providers can submit feedback to support ongoing improvements of the Handbook site.
