Immunisation is one of the most cost-effective means of preventing disease and improving health. The timeliness of immunisation delivery is important, including for the diseases preventable by vaccination to which very young infants are particularly vulnerable, such as pertussis (also known as whooping cough) and invasive pneumococcal disease.

This policy brief from Growing Up in New Zealand focuses on the intentions for immunisation, the sources of encouraging and discouraging information for pregnant women and their partners, and the impact that this information has on timely immunisation for the new generation of New Zealand children.
