Recent Events

Jessica Sipes from the UWA School of Psychology needs your help! Jessisca is an honours student studying attitudes to vaccination. Jessica and her supervisors are hoping to explore the way we come to make decisions, and examining aspects of morality people emphasise when making these decisions.

"You are invited to participate in a study evaluating people's attitudes towards vaccinations. The study is being conducted by Jessica Sipes as part of a research project in the School of Psychology at the University of Western Australia, supervised by Dr Mark Hurlstone and Isabel Rossen.  The study should take approximately 15 minutes of your time.

If you decide to participate, you will be required to answer some questions regarding how you would think or act in various situations and your beliefs about vaccinations. There are no risks associated with taking part in this study.

If you are above 18 years of age and would like to participate in the research, please click the web link below after which you will receive further information about the study."

The survey is about 10 - 15 minutes long, and will help broaden our research. Please help us today by clicking on the link below and filling out the survey.

Our Logo

  • Blue and green represent the Earth's land and sea. We are now part of a global community and it is crucial we are aware of this and keep our Global Village in mind. Infectious diseases travel everywhere and people travel abroad on holidays, migrate and work overseas all the time. No longer are our countries completely seperate landmasses! We can travel the world in less time than it takes for the Influenza virus to develop in a person!
  • The circle represents vaccination protection for the people in our community. The circle includes Herd Immunity, which is the goal we are striving for. Sometimes people cannot be vaccinated and they are protected by the control of the preventable diseases by the immunised herd. Vaccinating not only protects our nearest and dearest but also others in our community.
  • The human shapes represent people of all ages, colours, sizes and shapes. The one thing we want is for them all to be immunised! We hope to help educate people from all over Western Australia and help get those immunisation rates increasing again.
