Australians Urged to Immunise

Thursday 27th April / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Since 2010, we have seen a continual fall in the number of parents immunising their young children.

Whereas close to half of all WA children had the annual flu vaccine in 2008-2009, the rate fell to just 7% in 2010-2014 and continues to be very low, with only 11% of children under five receiving the flu vaccine last year.

As we draw closer towards Perth’s peak flu season, paediatrician and infectious diseases specialist from Princess Margaret Hospital, Chris Blyth, asks people to get the vaccine to avoid the risk of the influenza virus.
