The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) provides evidence-based advice and clinical recommendations on the use of vaccines in Australia. ATAGI’s recommendations are based on a rigorous process of reviewing scientific evidence and data, considering potential implementation issues, and incorporating societal values about the use of vaccines in the Australian context. These recommendations are then implemented by health care providers across Australia to protect people who are at risk of vaccine-preventable diseases and help ensure the safe, effective and equitable use of vaccines.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
