In reply: We welcome additional dialogue on the important issue of developing a whole-of-life immunisation register in Australia. As with introduction of any register, logistics and concerns about privacy must be carefully considered, and a stepwise approach may well be appropriate.
However, it is important to note that a non-acceptance rate of 8.5% derived from a small and potentially non-representative survey of seminar attendees does not necessarily represent a significant barrier to implementation of such a register.
