Abstract

It is almost 50 years since infant vaccination for diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus became routine in Australia. Since then, the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases has declined dramatically. We have used existing records and the recollections of experts to compile a history of vaccination in Australia, focusing on vaccines in the current childhood schedule.
