Catch-up immunisation for refugees and asylum seekers

Refugees and asylum seekers are overdue vaccines due to different country of origin schedules, and issues with health access. Vaccinate them to be equivalent to an Australian-born person of the same age. A Catch-up immunisation resource provides clinical advice, resource links, and information about the impact of recent immunisation policy on refugee families.
