Increasing immunisation coverage is a national priority and COORDINARE is working with primary health care providers to maintain and increase our region’s coverage rate. Read our Prevention initiatives statement for more information. 

As of the Dec 2020 quarter, the overall annualised immunisation figures for all children in the SENSWPHN
catchment was higher than NSW state and Australian national averages for all ages. However, there are some key scope of improvements that can be identified. To see the immunisation quarterly snapshot -- June 2021, please click here.
