The National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance of Vaccine Preventable Diseases (NCIRS) was established in August 1997 as part of the Immunise Australia Seven Point Plan. It performs research and gives independent expert advice about vaccine preventable diseases, surveillance of immunisation coverage and adverse events. It provides a national perspective on social and other issues related to immunisation participation and the impact of the interventions. The Centre has an active postgraduate training program.
The Centre's first comprehensive report of these activities, collaborations and resulting publications is now available on www.ncirs.usyd.edu.au or as hard copy by mailing NCIRS at PO Box 3515, Parramatta NSW 2124. Fax 02 9845 3082.
