Meningococcal Vaccine Program

Meningococcal Vaccine Program

Yesterday the NT Government announced that based on latest clinical advice, the meningococcal vaccine program will be expanded to include people aged 1-19 living in urban Darwin.

An implementation plan is being developed to allow rollout of the program commencing within a few weeks.

Further announcements will be made when the vaccination is available and where it can be accessed.

The vaccine is already on the NT vaccination schedule for children aged 12-24 months under the nationally funded program.
