Description: 

Public consultation on the proposed changes to the infant pneumococcal vaccination schedule in The Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition was conducted over a four-week period from 1 September 2017 to 2 October 2017, during which time the proposed changes were available on the Citizen Space website. The Department of Health invited a range of stakeholders, committees, working groups and interested people to provide submissions.

Following public consultation, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation made a submission to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), seeking its approval of the proposed changes to the revised infant pneumococcal vaccination schedule in The Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition. This submission was approved by NHMRC 22 November 2017.

The following document package includes:

  • The public consultation document with the drafted recommendations and rationale for the changes which were released as part of the public consultation
  • The report outlining the public consultation comments received for the proposed changes
  • The approved submission to the National Health and Medical Research Council on the proposed changes to the infant pneumococcal vaccination schedule.
