Outreach immunisation service
Outreach support services are offered to communities / those who might not otherwise have access to health services. The outreach immunisation service follows up on families who have children (ages 0-6 years) that have missed vaccinations.
The primary objective is to improve childhood immunisation rates amongst Maori, Pacific and other priority groups with high rates of vaccine preventable disease and low rates of immunisation.
Outreach Immunisation services focus on:
- Reaching families in their own home who are overdue on immunisation
- Raising awareness of health issues
- Promoting healthy living
