State and territory vaccine objection (conscientious objection) data
We aim to provide documents in an accessible format. If you're having problems using a document with your accessibility tools, please contact us for help.
The following Word and PDF documents provide conscientious objection data by state and territory for 2012 to 2015. Conscientious objection statistics are given as at a point in time, not a total number recorded each year.
Since 1 January 2016, conscientious objection has been removed as a valid reason for a vaccination exemption. Only historical conscientious objection data is published on this page.
