The Telethon Kids Institute's Wesfarmers Centre of Vaccines and Infectious Diseases promotes research and public education on vaccination. To ensure all children in WA are protected against vaccine-preventable disease, a project is underway to identify ways to increase vaccine coverage, such as using text messages to remind parents who may have forgotten about routine vaccinations.

Other studies done by the Wesfarmers Centre have looked at the effectiveness of vaccines for influenza, meningococcal B and pneumococcal disease; the need for a whooping cough booster for 18-month-olds; and ways to improve uptake of the Human Papilloma Virus vaccine within the school-based vaccination program.
