Pap Smears

The Pap test is a quick and simple check for changes to the cells of the cervix that may lead to cervical cancer if left untreated. All women aged between 18 and 70 years should have a Pap test every two years, even if they have had the cervical cancer vaccine. Nine in 10 women who develop cervical cancer either have not had a Pap test or have not had them regularly. In Australia, regular Pap tests save more than 1,200 women each year from cervical cancer. An abnormal result rarely means cancer so you should always discuss your results with your doctor or nurse. <Back to General Information>

Vaccinations and Immunisation

Immunisation protects people against harmful infections before they come into contact with them in the community. Immunisation uses the body's natural defence mechanism - the immune response - to build resistance to specific infections. Immunisation helps people stay healthy by preventing serious infections.

The diseases which can be prevented by routine childhood immunisation are included in the National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule. There are two reasons for immunising every child in Australia:

1.Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of giving protection against the disease. After immunisation, your child is far less likely to catch the disease if there are cases in the community. The benefit of protection against the disease far outweighs the very small risks of immunisation.

2.If enough people in the community are immunised, the infection can no longer be spread from person to person and the disease dies out altogether. This is how smallpox was eliminated from the world and polio has disappeared from many countries.
