The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers

Common myths about immunisation have been laid to rest in a comprehensive new booklet written by the nation's top immunologists and published by the Australian Academy of Science. Devised by a national panel of experts in response to confusion created by contradictory information in the public domain, The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers explains the latest immunology science in accessible language. Based on a series of key questions, the publication aims to increase awareness of the science upon which public and personal health policy decisions responses should be based.

The booklet was prepared by a Working Group overseen by Professor Tony Basten and Professor Ian Frazer, and an Oversight Committee chaired by Sir Gus Nossal. Launching the booklet today, Academy President Professor Suzanne Cory urged all parents to use it as an aid to making crucial
decisions about their children's health.
