In 2005, the National Immunisation Program implemented a varicella vaccine for children aged 18 months, and in 2016, a herpes zoster (HZ) vaccine for adults aged 70-79 years. This epidemiological review analyses national trends in varicella and HZ for the years 1998-2015 to examine the impact of a funded varicella vaccine and provide a baseline for monitoring the impact of a funded HZ vaccine.
