WA General Practice Network Immunisation Program

 

Overview

The WA General Practice Network Immunisation Program, part of the National Immunisation Program, aims to improve the quality of vaccination services provided by general practice, with the overall goal of improving immunisation rates across Western Australia.

The major focus of the immunisation program is participation of general practitioners in the General Practice Immunisation Incentive (GPII) program with the outcome of improving overall immunisation coverage rates to 90% in children fully immunised under seven years of age.

The GPII Scheme is one of the Immunise Australia initiatives announced in 1997 as part of a Seven Point Plan to lift immunisation coverage rates in Australia and to reduce the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases.

Each of the 13 WA Divisions implements an Immunisation Program. Each Division offers a range of services for GPs, Practices and patients including resources, new information and education regarding:

* Vaccines and vaccination schedules
* Vaccination Storage
* Data Management
* Recall and reminder for Immunisation
* Patient Education Resources

WA General Practice Network assists WA Divisions to work collaboratively through a supportive network.
