Description

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 handbook's clinical recommendations are based on the best scientific evidence available at the time of publication from published and unpublished literature. Where specific empiric evidence are unavailable, recommendations were formulated using the best available expert opinion relevant to Australia.

The 10th edition of the handbook is a revision of the (9th) edition released in 2008 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. To view the changes see http://www.ncirs.edu.au/immunisation/education/tools/index.php
