Dear [Name redacted]

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION

Thank you for your request received 22 May under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) for information relating to meningococcal vaccines.  This was transferred from the Minister of Health to PHARMAC, to the extent that it relates to PHARMAC.  You asked:

What meetings have been held, if any, involving discussions around adding Meningococcal vaccines to the National immunisation programme after a schedule review meeting recommended this in October 2017, listed by meeting date, convener and subject?" 

Please see the information requested in the table below.

We trust that this information answers your query.  We are making our information more freely available, so we will now publish selected OIA responses (excluding personal details) on our website.  Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about this.

Yours sincerely
