Public consultation on the proposed changes to the recommended use of meningococcal and Haemophilus influenzae type B vaccines in The Australian Immunisation Handbook was conducted over a four-week period from 06 April 2018 to 06 May 2018, during which time the proposed changes were available on the Citizen Space website. The Department of Health invited a range of stakeholders, committees, working groups and interested people to provide submissions.
Following public consultation, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation made a submission to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), seeking its approval of the proposed changes to the recommended use of meningococcal and Haemophilus influenzae type B vaccines in The Australian Immunisation Handbook. This submission was approved by NHMRC in July 2018.
The following documents are available here:
