Public Consultation of the Discussion Paper Towards the National Immunisation Strategy 2025-30

Closed 19 Jun 2024

Opened 22 May 2024


The Department of Health and Aged Care is undertaking an open public consultation on a new National Immunisation Strategy for 2025-2030 (the Strategy).

The public consultation is based on the document - Towards a National Immunisation Strategy 2025-2030 – which proposes a vision, mission, priority areas, and opportunities for action for the next Strategy.

Through an online survey, we are interested in your views and responses to the ideas put forward in the consultation paper. The survey should take you about 15-20 minutes to complete.

Please take the time to read the consultation paper before you fill in the survey. This will assist you in answering the questions and provide some contextual information about the current immunisation landscape in Australia.  

This survey will close at 11:59 pm AEST on Wednesday, 19 June 2024.
