WA Statewide Meningococcal W Immunisation Program Years 10-12
In term 3 this year the WA Department of Health is providing a new Meningococcal Immunisation Program for students in years 10, 11 and 12.
The WA meningococcal W immunisation program has been launched in response to a recent increase in meningococcal infection caused by a particular type of the bacteria, ‘serogroup W’.
Meningococcal disease can affect any age group. However, some of the highest rates of meningococcal carriage and illness occur among 15-19 year olds. Of the 21 meningococcal W cases diagnosed in WA between 2013 and 2016, 24 percent were adolescents aged 15-19 years old.
Further information about meningococcal disease and the immunisation program can be found on the Consent Forms which will be sent home with students, and will need to be returned to the school by the Friday 9 June 2017.
Dates for the immunisations in term 3 will be confirmed at a later date.
Please ensure you complete, sign and return the form, even if you are not consenting to the vaccination/s. No student will be vaccinated without your consent.
If you have any concerns or queries about these vaccinations please contact Tammy Vause – School Health Nurse on ph. 9881 9330.
