The Metro North Public Health Unit coordinates and supports the implementation of the National Immunisation Program for Queensland within the Metro North Hospital and Health Service. We work with vaccine service providers, including primary health care, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services, hospitals, correctional facilities and local councils.
Immunisation is considered one of the most important achievements of modern medicine, saving millions of lives every year. It underpins a healthy community and is a core responsibility of the healthcare sector. Immunisation remains extremely important and highly effective at preventing serious and life threatening infectious diseases.
