Immunisation gives a very good level of protection against many serious diseases. It uses your body's natural defence mechanism - the immune response - to build resistance to specific infection.

Vaccinations and boosters

Some of the diseases frequently vaccinated against are diphtheria, tetanus, influenza, rubella, hepatitis B, meningococcal disease and pneumococcal disease. All of these diseases can cause serious complications and can sometimes be life-threatening. Read more

School based immunisation program

Starting in 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services, secondary schools and Local Councils across Tasmania are focusing on improving immunisation coverage rates for young people in Tasmania.

Improving our coverage rate will mean our young people are better protected from preventable diseases such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and whooping cough.
