This Operational Circular is designed to advise Department of Health staff on Departmental policies and procedures and may contain advice that is not appropriate in other circumstances.
Homeopathic immunisation has not been shown to be effective by itself.
Persons requesting information on homeopathic information should be advised that it is not an alternative to the recommended immunisation schedule.
Persons who have not had the recommended immunisation schedule will be considered unimmunised and may be temporarily excluded from child care or school if they become a contact of a case of measles, pertussis, diphtheria, or poliomyelitis.
Dr Shirley Bowen
