Reduce the incidence of vaccine preventable infectious diseases
Country SA PHN works with stakeholders and Immunisation providers to maintain and improve childhood immunisation coverage rates across our region to reduce the incidence of vaccine preventable infectious diseases.
We aim to promote, support and encourage the provision of safe, effective and timely vaccinations through general practice, community health services or other providers.
CSAPHN’s immunisation program
Improving vaccination coverage for all South Australians
The Immunisation Hub is working to improve vaccination coverage for all South Australians.
The Hub is a joint program of Country SA PHN and Adelaide PHN. The team works to support both immunisation providers as well as community across South Australia.
Vaccination is for everyone in every community and across the age spectrum. Vaccination is a safe and effective way of protecting yourself and those around you. To optimise protection, most vaccines need to be given several times in in order to build long lasting protection so it’s important for both children and adults to complete the full schedule of vaccinations recommended to them across their lives.
The Health Integration & Coordination works with practices to ensure that country South Australians are receiving the right care, in the right place, at the right time. The aim of the After-Hours Immunisation Activity is to support General Practice and Pharmacy to provide access for clients who are unable to attend a clinic during business hours receive Flu Vaccinations in the After-Hours period.
