Immunisation

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 September 2020 quarter, the overall annualised immunisation figures for all children in the South Eastern NSW PHN 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 -- September 2020, please click here.

From 1 July 2020, changes to the immunisation schedule are designed to improve protection against meningococcal and pneumococcal disease. The changes and the updated schedule are now available on the NSW Health Immunisation programs webpage.
