Immunisation rates up Plunket has welcomed the news that New Zealand's childhood immunis- ation rate is now at a record high. Particularly pleasing to see is the 14 percent increase in the immunis- ation rate among the Maori and Pacific communities,'' Plunket clinical advisor Allison Jamieson says. Immunisation is a vitally important a tool to protect New Zealand families and communities. Vaccination is the most effective way to protect children from the many childhood diseases that can affect New Zealand families today.'' Allison says these diseases can have serious complications and are often spread by family members or friends. Immunisation has a profoundly positive effect not only on the individ- ual but on the whole of the population thereby improving community immun- ity from the disease. Immunisation is a free, proven way that parents can protect their children against 11 serious diseases, including measles, mumps and rubella. It is never too late to catch up, even if a child has fallen behind on the immu- nisation schedule,'' she says. If parents are not sure when their child is due for immunisation they can check the immunisation schedule at www.plunket.org.nz or call their doc- tor.The Immunisation Advisory Centre also offers information and advice about immunisation and preventing the spread of infection through its toll- free line 0800 466 863 and website www.immune.org.nz . Plunket is one of many community groups that give immunisation infor- mation to parents and caregivers. For more information about immun- isation you can talk to a Plunket nurse or call PlunketLine on 0800 933 922 24hours, seven days. Upgrade lauded The Government's planed upgrading and enhancing of the Cancer Registry will bring substantial and exciting benefits to the cancer community, Dal- ton Kelly, chief executive of the Can- cer Society says. The database within the enhanced Cancer Registry will mean that trends, such as moves from surgery to radiation treatment, can be monitored in real time. Health planners will see the trends as they happen, rather than waiting for shortages and length- ening waiting times to indicate resources are needed.
