National partnership agreement on essential vaccines (2009)

Council of Australian Governments

This agreement outlines the arrangements for the ongoing funding and delivery of a national, coordinated, integrated approach to maintaining and improving effective immunisation for vaccine preventable diseases funded under the National immunisation program.

The agreement commenced on 1 July 2009 between the Commonwealth of Australia and each of the Australian States and Territories, and includes four performance benchmarks by which each State and Territory is assessed on an annual basis:

  • maintaining or increasing vaccine coverage for Indigenous Australians
  • maintaining or increasing coverage in areas of agreed low immunisation coverage
  • maintaining or decreasing wastage and leakage
  • maintaining or increasing vaccination coverage for four year olds.
