Abstract

As Australian First Nations people, public health practitioners and academics, we would like to thank Borg et al. for the raising the importance of increasing influenza vaccination rates [1]. The coverage of influenza immunisation in Australian First Nations children is close to 50% in the Northern Territory but is very low in most other states, thus this is a topic worthy of research. We would, however, like to offer an additional interpretation of their study results. Raising immunisation coverage from 4% to 6% is reported in the paper as a statistically significant result. We feel the most important result is that at least 94% of children remained unimmunised.
