Discussion

This research looks at preventable hospital admissions in Australia for the years 2013-2014. Among other things, this research found that as many as 30,000 could have been prevented by vaccines. It is unclear from the data how many of the admissions were due to vaccine failure, but it is clear that many of these 30,000 cases could have been prevented.
