Investigation of Western Australian children with no vaccinations recorded on the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register

This report describes a WA Health investigation into the reasons that WA children had no immunisations on the previously operational Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR). The main reason was that children had moved from overseas but previous immunisations had not been added to the ACIR.
