IMAC Conference and Workshops

IMAC holds an Immunisation Workshop every year. The one day workshop programme is designed for front-line vaccinators, health care workers and immunisation coordinators. The workshops are a mixture of speaker presentations and concurrent group discussions. The topics tend to focus on practical aspects of service delivery and communication, but there are also clinical and technical updates. Please scroll down this page for 2014 flyer and registration form.

Every second year, the workshop is combined with the National Immunisation Conference. The conference has a more academic focus, presenting recent research from areas of immunology, vaccinology, policy development and other topics. The conference attendees are usually a mix of workshop attendess and additional health professional, local and central government staff.

Both the workshop and conference attract international speakers and attendees. They are excellent opportunities to network with your local, national and international colleagues. We vary the location of the workshop and conferences to allow different regions of New Zealand, but always with airport access from major cities.

Inaugural New Zealand influenza Symposium

12 November 2014

Register Now! *Registration period extended to Friday 7th November*

We are pleased to announce a new opportunity for our clinical and academic colleagues-a one day symposium focussing upon influenza and vaccine strategies for NZ. Influenza remains a significant challenge - its chimeric changes and seemingly random ferocity makes it a difficult disease to control and communicate about.

The New Zealand influenza Symposium (NZiS) provides a chance to hear from international and local experts on, disease prevalence and impact and advances in vaccines.  We will look at the future hopes in both understanding and controlling this common disease.
