The Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC) are funded by the Ministry of Health to provide training and deliver education around the COVID vaccines to vaccinator and non-vaccinator workforces.
IMAC are a nationwide organisation based at the School of Population Health at The University of Auckland. They provide New Zealanders with a local source of independent, factual information based on international and New Zealand scientific research regarding vaccine-preventable diseases and the benefits and risks of immunisation.
As health professionals, Social Workers interact with an extensive, vulnerable population who may have queries or concerns around the COVID vaccine. IMAC is able to provide online support and education to Social Workers to enable them to engage in these conversations with confidence while providing up to date, research based information to their clients.
