Immunisation

The NSW Immunisation Program provides the community of NSW with protection against vaccine preventable diseases through initiatives targeting infants, adolescents, healthcare workers and older people. The Program involves coordinated efforts by the Ministry of Health (formally the NSW Department of Health), Area Health Services, general practice, local government, educational authorities and Aboriginal Controlled Community Health Organisations. The Program is undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the National Immunisation Program, through which the Australian Government provides funds to NSW for the purchase of vaccines, and is strongly aligned with the priorities of the NSW State Plan and State Health Plan.
