​National program to deliver free meningococcal vaccine to teenagers

October 16, 2018

Minister for Health Greg Hunt has announced that the meningococcal A, C, W and Y vaccine will be added to the National Immunisation Program from April 2019, protecting more than 1 million teenagers against meningococcal over the next four years. 

The vaccine will be rolled out under a free school based program and provided to students aged 14 to 16-years-old. For adolescents aged between 15 and 19 who are not yet vaccinated, the meningococcal vaccine will be available through an ongoing GP catch up program. To find out more, CLICK HERE.
