Meningococcal ACWY catch up: adolescents aged 15 to 19 years

Since 1 April 2019, the meningococcal ACWY vaccine has been added to the National Immunisation Program (NIP) as a funded vaccine for students in Year 10 through the school-based vaccination program.

The free vaccine is also available for adolescents aged 15 to 19 years through the NIP catch up program by visiting a GP or immunisation provider.

Encourage your patients in this age group to get their free meningococcal ACWY catch up if they didn’t get their immunisation in year 10.
