Map: Child immunisation rates by age and small area
Table data notes:
In order to protect confidentiality and ensure reliabilty, results are only published where there are 26 or more children in that geographic area. The following annotations apply:
# - Interpret with caution: The eligible population is between 26 and 100 children. Results should be interpreted with caution as small data errors may affect results.
NP - Not available for publication as the area has fewer than 26 registered children, or the number of children not fully immunised is between one and five inclusive.
Fully immunised means a child has received the scheduled vaccinations according to age for hepatitis B (hepB); diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (DTPa); Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib); polio (IPV); pneumococcal and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).
The regions displayed on the map are known as 'SA3' areas. SA3s are the functional areas of regional towns and cities with a population in excess of 20,000 or clusters of related suburbs around urban commercial and transport hubs within the major urban areas. The regional breakups have been designed to reflect regional identity. They are areas with both geographic and socio-economic similarities.
