Immunisation has repeatedly demonstrated to be one of the most effective medical interventions to prevent disease. The success of vaccines has resulted in a significant reduction in morbidity and mortality from many infectious diseases. As such Immunisation has become a vital part of general practice. The Commonwealth Government’s General Practice Immunisation Incentives (GPII) provides substantial financial incentives for practices to achieve over 90% coverage.
