In order to be able to give advice to the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport on the full spectrum of vaccination care, there is the Committee on Vaccinations. The criteria that must be met, have been formulated in the advisory report The individual, collective and public importance of vaccination, published in 2013. This permanent committee succeeds the Committee on the National Immunisation Programme. For this broad advisory task, the Health Council of the Netherlands cooperates with the National Health Care Institute.  

This activity is a permanent part of Prevention focus area.
