Improving Western Sydney Immunisation Rates

In the bid to boost the region’s childhood immunisation rates, the Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN) will launch the Immunisation Bike Competition on Sunday, 1st October. The highly successful campaign, now in its sixth year, is a great opportunity for general practices to be a part of this nationally acclaimed initiative.

Every child who receives their 12 month, 18 month or four year-old immunisation in participating practices during the competition period will be eligible to go into the draw to win a bike and helmet. The competition will run from 1st October 2017 to 31st January 2018 with the 24 winners being announced on 22nd February.

Since its implementation, this initiative has seen more than 4,700 western Sydney children immunised throughout the campaign periods. Registrations are still open and so far 126 general practices have registered to participate.

Practices will receive supportive promotional packs including posters and immunisation reminder templates as well as entry forms, stickers and a certificate for participating children.

Now is the time to register. Simply complete the registration form and email to the Practice Development Team at

For more information, please call the Help Desk on 8811 7117 (Option 2) or contact your Practice Development Officer.
