Membership of the Immunisation Coalition consists of individuals from Australia and New Zealand, with medical and scientific expertise, and an interest in immunisation and infectious diseases. The core of the membership stems from the founding members of the Influenza Specialist Group, which has evolved into the Immunisation Coalition.
All members have voting rights for matters under consideration at the annual general meeting. The committees of the Immunisation Coalition are populated by its members, who provide expert knowledge and experience for the effective management of the organisation. Directors are also drawn from the membership.
In addition to Individual Members, there are Associate Members – members without voting rights – who represent a variety of associated organisations (as listed below). All membership applications (both individual and associate) are received by the Board for consideration, and assessed accordingly.
