Immunisation

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases. It helps individuals and the wider community by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.

Primary Health Tasmania supports the Australian Government’s National Immunisation Program by working collaboratively with stakeholders to provide education programs and resources to improve efficiency and effectiveness of immunisation services.

The overall aim is to reduce the number of cases of diseases that are preventable by vaccination in Tasmania.

Meningococcal

The Tasmanian Government launched a Meningococcal ACWY Immunisation Program after a number of cases of the disease were detected in the state.

All vaccines available in Australia have been thoroughly tested for safety and effectiveness and are continually monitored and evaluated.
