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 Immunise Australia Program by working with general practice to improve and maintain immunisation coverage rates in the state.

Meningococcal

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