Immunisation programme decisions

The Ministry of Health considers that it is important to be open and transparent about the decisions and recommendations that it makes on significant public issues.

This section provides links to documents and papers which informed the Ministry’s recent decisions regarding immunisation.

The article ‘Evolution of the New Zealand Childhood Immunisation Schedule from 1980’ in Vol 119, No 1236 of the New Zealand Medical Journal (PDF, 1.5 MB) is a useful summary of previous immunisation decisions, including the childhood immunisation schedule.
