The Australian Government has partnered with the Australian Academy of Science to update The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers guide. The guide reflects the most up-to-date evidence and science behind immunisation. A new video about the benefits of COVID-19 vaccines supports the guide.
A working group of leading scientists, doctors, science communicators and experts in language and social sciences oversaw the update of the guide.
The publication, and a series of short videos and in-depth articles summarise the current understanding of immunisation around five key questions:
- What is immunisation?
- What is in a vaccine?
- Who benefits from vaccines?
- Are vaccines safe?
- What does the future hold for vaccination?
The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers publication, videos and articles are available from the Australian Academy of Science.
These resources will answer your questions about immunisation.
