Project Description

For older children, such as adolescents who receive vaccinations in Australian secondary schools, the return of the consent form is a major limitation in achieving vaccination coverage in this age group. Interventions to incentivise return of this consent form might improve rates of vaccination delivered through school vaccination programs. Working with local councils and the Victorian Government Department of Premier and Cabinet, this trial will evaluate if Vaxcards, an educational, vaccine themed table top card game, is an effective incentive to improve vaccination consent form return rate amongst high school students.
