SKAI – Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation is designed to give you confidence that the parents you see have access to credible information about vaccination that supports your recommendations for their children. 

First launched in 2019, the SKAI website was updated in 2023 via the consolidation of content from three separate websites. The site now features:

  • SKAI Healthcare Professionals, which provides access to a range of vaccination communication resources, including factsheets, tools and training materials that can be used by both individuals and teams.  
  • SKAI Pregnancy & Newborn, which offers information about the vaccines recommended for pregnant women and their newborn babies, as well as about the diseases they prevent. This content was first published by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. 
  • SKAI Childhood, which features information about the vaccines recommended as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP) and provides answers to common questions about vaccine safety, common side effects, risks and benefits, and more.

Information about the vaccinations recommended at each milestone has been translated into Arabic, Simplified Chinese and Vietnamese. The website also contains information about vaccination for special risk groups and information about referral pathways available in your state or territory.

SKAI is designed to help you continue to improve the quality and safety of the care you provide to your community.
