Jabs for teens
Pilbara teenagers aged 15 to 19 are encouraged to get the free meningococcal ACWY vaccine to help protect them and others against this serious disease.
Last month, Health Minister Roger Cook announced a threeyear vaccination program, targeting teenagers who are most at risk of developing the disease.
Phase one started in Term 2 in some secondary schools and all Aboriginal medical services for Year 10, 11 and 12 students.
Phase two begins in Term 3 across WA and is for Year 10, 11 and 12 students and for university students at on-campus medical centres.
Phase three will start in Term 4 with GP surgery vaccination for students who missed their school vaccination in Terms 2 or 3, and teenagers aged 15 to 19 who are not at school or university.
