Pre session summary
The Immunisation program is firmly entrenched in the Six Key Priority Areas and Four National headline performance indicators that have been set for all PHNs.

To achieve the Childhood Immunisation indicator (increasing childhood immunisation rates), the Adelaide PHN and Country SA PHN have joined forces and established the SA PHN Immunisation Hub. Angela will present on the concept, focus and ongoing development of the Hub.

Post session facilitator summary notes

  • Vaccinations wane after about 4 months
  • Despite late onset of flu expected this season it is still wise to vaccinate now
  • You can’t get the flu from a flu injection
