Sydney 2000: Not Very Vaxxy

Sydney's 2000 postcode has the worst childhood vaccination rate in the country, national data reveals.

A deep dive into vaccination rates by suburb shows vast disparities between neighbouring communities and some alarmingly low vaccination rates in Sydney and NSW.

Just 70.5 per cent of five year old children were fully vaccinated in the area encompassing the Sydney CBD, Millers Point, Haymarket, Dawes Point, The Rocks, shows 2015-2015 immunisation data released Thursday.

More than one in four children (122) in this age group living in this area have not received all the vaccinations listed on the National Immunisation Program Schedule, found the Healthy Communities report.
More (and ref linky) at source

When the winds of change blow hard enough, the most trivial of things can become deadly projectiles.
