The digital Australian Immunisation Handbook is coming soon
GPs will be interested to know that the digital version of the Immunisation Handbook will be available from mid-September 2018. The Handbook provides clinical guidelines for health professionals on the safest and most effective use of vaccines in their practice.
Developed by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation and endorsed by the National Health and Medical Research Council, the digital Handbook will provide a single, up-to-date clinical reference guide for health care providers administering vaccines in Australia.
In addition to transitioning into a fully online, digital Handbook, providers will see new vaccination recommendations, including for meningococcal disease. Those working in remote locations or needing to work 'off-line' will be able to download relevant sections to take with them.
