Immunisation Subcommittee minutes are published in accordance with the Terms of Reference for the Pharmacology and Therapeutics Advisory Committee (PTAC) and PTAC Subcommittees 2008.
Note that this document is not necessarily a complete record of the Immunisation Subcommittee meeting; only the relevant portions of the minutes relating to Immunisation Subcommittee discussions about an Application or PHARMAC staff proposal that contain a recommendation are generally published.
The Immunisation Subcommittee may:
a) recommend that a pharmaceutical be listed by PHARMAC on the Pharmaceutical Schedule and the priority it gives to such a listing;
b) defer a final recommendation, and give reasons for the deferral (such as the supply of further information) and what is required before further review; or
c) recommend that PHARMAC decline to list a pharmaceutical on the Pharmaceutical Schedule.
These Subcommittee minutes were reviewed by PTAC at its meeting on 11 & 12 February 2016, a record of which will be available in due course.
