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 is coordinated by NSW Health and Local Heath Districts. It is run 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.
