Meningococcal vaccine fact sheets now available

September 10, 2018

The  Australian Government, Department of Health and the NCIRS website have made available Meningococcal vaccine factsheets and frequently asked questions about meningococcal disease.

General Practitioners and other immunisations providers are encouraged to remain aware of the national, state and territory meningococcal immunisation programs currently available as some of the funded meningococcal immunisation programs are time limited.

These fact sheets provide GPs and other immunisation providers with information regarding the signs and symptoms of the disease, what immediate treatment is required and encourage GPs to offer patients at risk of meningococcal disease protection through immunisation where possible.

Further information regarding the state and territory meningococcal programs can be accessed through Australian Government, Department of Health website.
