Childhood Immunisation CSA Campaign

While the percentage of Australian five year olds who are fully immunised is high at 94.20%, which is close to the target of 95% (Source: Department of Health and Aged Care), a recent study by Unicef found that confidence in childhood vaccines has been falling since the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, this content, edited from ‘talkback’ style radio programs on the topic of childhood immunisation, is geared towards improving confidence in childhood vaccination.

Those programs have been edited into single question and answer format audio and social media content for use by any radio station that feels this issue is of importance and concern to their listeners. Each piece ranges between 90 seconds and 5 minutes and has been produced by various First Nations radio stations as well as Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, South Asian English, Punjabi, Spanish and Vietnamese broadcasters.
