The Queensland Health Immunisation Program (QHIP) implements the National Immunisation Program in Queensland. The National Immunisation Program is a joint Australian, State and Territory Government initiative aimed at controlling the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases in the community through improving vaccination coverage to recommended National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) levels.
QHIP provides direct services, including vaccine distribution and immunisation advice, to over 1,800 vaccine service providers. These providers include general practitioners, councils, hospitals, correctional facilities, child and community health, and Community Controlled Health Services.
QHIP is part of the Communicable Diseases Branch, Health Protection, Division of the Chief Health Officer, Queensland Health. Click here for QHIP contact details.
