The ACA, in partnership with researchers from the University of NSW (UNSW), is seeking feedback about your thoughts and  experiences surrounding the immunisation of staff in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services.

While there has been ongoing focus on the vaccination of the children before attending ECEC services, there is very little data about the current immunisation practices amongst ECEC staff.

The information drawn from survey responses will inform a UNSW study into this topic. The data will also assist the ECEC sector in identifying any issues that may need addressing and/or any potential improvements, in the context of the immunisation of ECEC staff Australia-wide.

The online survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete, and does not collect any identifiable information, so your feedback will be anonymous.  

At the completion of the survey, participants can enter the draw to win one of four Westfield $100 gift vouchers.

We would greatly appreciate your contribution to this important study.
