A $5 million message

South Burnett - ‘Get The Facts about Immunisation’ Program

The federal government is spending over $5 million to get the message out about immunisation through the South Burnett.

Around 82% of children under the age of one are vaccinated in areas like Murgon and Cherbourg this is among the lowest in the country.

The commonwealth will roll out it's ‘Get the Facts about Immunisation’ program through child care centres and social media.

Wide Bay MP Llew O'Brien says lower immunisations increase the risk of disease outbreaks especially through newborn babies and people with a medical condition.
