There is a new vaccine currently available for 15-19 years olds to cover against Meningococcal disease which covers against strains ACWY. This vaccine is different to the Meningococcal C vaccine previously given.
Meningococcal disease can become very serious quite quickly and can result in death. It is important to take advantage of this vaccine while it is free.
All Secondary Schools are being offered a program for students to receive, however if you miss this at School, or haven’t had it at all, it is available at Council Public Sessions or your GP.
This vaccine will only be available FREE until the end of December 2017.
