Health Professionals

IMAC is committed to supporting the immunisation information and training needs of all health professionals. We hope this section of our site will provide additional information you will find useful. All vaccine and disease information has been centralised, with the more clinical information referred to an 'in depth' information.

We welcome feedback on the  site, please send any comments to Theo Brandt, Communications Manager.


9th NZ Immunisation Conference and preconference Workshop: 3-5 September, Wintec, Hamilton, 2015.

This year’s conference promises to be another excellent opportunity to learn, share and enjoy a few days of all things vaccine and immunisation related. We are very honoured to introduce Dr Noni MacDonald as our key note international speaker. Dr MacDonald has long been recognized in Canada as an advocate for children and youth health and as a leader in paediatric infectious disease. At Conference she will explore aspects of vaccine hesitancy, and how better to engage with this group. Along with our other Australasian and Oceanic colleagues, I’m sure this year’s programme will provide you all with valuable opportunities to consider new perspectives, refresh friendships and boost the batteries. We look forward to seeing you in Hamilton.
