Australia’s active vaccine safety system
We are very pleased to announce that the AusVaxSafety report, Vaccine safety in Australia 2016–17, has been selected as a finalist in two categories for the Clear Communication Awards.
The Clear Communication Awards are the first and only awards in Australia to recognise and promote excellence in clear communication. The awards acknowledge digital and print examples of work that combine excellence in design, communication principles and plain language to make it as easy as possible for the user to find the information they need.
The Vaccine safety in Australia report shows how parents and carers responded to the SMS about their child's health a few days after their vaccination at each schedule point in the National Immunisation Program in 2016–17. The report was designed by Biotext in collaboration with NCIRS, and included data from SmartVax.
