The Australian immunisation handbook provides clinical guidelines for health professionals on the safest and most effective use of vaccines in their practice. The recommendations are developed by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and endorsed by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

The 9th edition of the handbook is a revision of the (8th) edition released in September 2003 and introduces new vaccines, changes to the schedules, changes to recommendations and procedures regarding the administration of vaccines, and changes to the presentation of the handbook.
