About us

This website supports the Influenza Immunisation Programme campaign and is brought to you by The Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC) on behalf of Te Whatu Ora.

IMAC is nationwide organisation with a head office based in the School of Population Health at The University of Auckland. We have staff around the country. The Immunisation Advisory Centre was formed in 1997.

IMAC provides independent, evidence-based information about vaccine-preventable diseases and the benefits and risks of immunisation to health workers, policy makers, media and New Zealanders.

IMAC also provides education and communications to health workers supporting them to deliver an effective and equitable immunisation programme.
