Consumer Information on Vaccines
Specific information relating to the different childhood vaccines administered as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP) can be viewed in the Consumer Medicine Information (CMI).
The CMI is a leaflet written by the pharmaceutical company who makes the vaccine. It contains information on the safe and effective use of vaccines, including answers to common questions, such as what the vaccine is used for, how and when the vaccine is administered and if there are any side effects. The CMI provides information aimed at bringing about better health outcomes.
