Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee (AIVC)
Information on the role and membership of AIVC and proposed meeting dates.
Role of the AIVC
The Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee (AIVC) provides advice to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) on the composition of the seasonal influenza vaccine to be supplied each year in Australia.
The meeting is held annually following the September World Health Organisation (WHO) strain consultation meeting, which makes a decision on vaccine composition for the Southern Hemisphere. At the meeting the committee reviews and evaluates current available data related to the epidemiology, antigenic and genetic analysis of recent circulating regional and southern hemisphere influenza isolates and serological responses to the previous season vaccines.
AIVC is not involved in any decision making process under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.
