The Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC) is a nationwide organisation based at The University of Auckland.

We provide New Zealanders with independent, factual information about vaccine-preventable diseases and the benefits and risks of immunisation. We also provide training for health professionals, national immunisation coordination and policy advice and research.

For questions about immunisation and vaccination-preventable diseases you can call us free on: 0800 IMMUNE (0800 466 863), weekdays 9am-4.30 pm, or contact us.

 This section provides some guidance around informed decisions and choosing sources of information.
