Immunisation rates better for all

Thursday, 14 November 2013

Health Minister Tony Ryall reported a significant improvement in New Zealand's immunisation rates for children by their second birthday.

More importantly, immunisation rates for Maori and Pacific children have improved by 50% since 2007 with the number of children being equal to or higher than European children in more than half of the DHBs.  Ryall considers "This is a tremendous result and a tribute to the hard work of general practice teams, Well Child providers, community outreach teams, midwives, district health board staff and the national immunisation programme team".
