Vaccination Requirements and the basics of what you need to know and be aware of

Dr Sarah Alexander

coldsOne of the key international measures of a healthy population is a country's percentage of children fully immunised against diseases.

The higher the immunisation rate, the more successful NZ is seen to be in protecting young children's health.  However, there are things you need to know and issues to consider at both the individual level for a child, for supporting a family's decision, and for other children and people within an early childhood service and the community.

The article below covers the following topics:

  1. Availability
  2. Safety
  3. Attending an Early Childhood Service and Starting School
  4. The Immunisation Debate
  5. Children with Immune Deficiencies
  6. Flu Vaccine for Children at Increased Risk of Infection
  7. Vaccination Timing
  8. The NZ National Immunisation Schedule to Age 5 years and the Diseases Covered (applies from 1 July 2019)
  9. Do caregivers/parents have a legal obligation to vaccinate their children before attending an early childhood service in NZ and can an ECE service turn non-vaccinated child away?
