Meningococcal ACWY vaccination for 17-18 year olds

31 May 2017

The meningococcal ACWY response program commenced on 1 May 2017 as part of the school immunisation program, targeting year 11 and 12 students. NSW Health has notified general practices that they can now order meningococcal ACWY vaccine (Menactra®) for 17-18 year olds as part of their routine monthly order. While we expect that the majority of 17-18 year olds will be vaccinated as part of the school program, the vaccine can be given in general practice to those who do not attend secondary school due to other commitments.
