Up to 60,000 South Australian students to be offered Meningococcal B vaccines

Over a 2 year period up to 60,000 SA students between Year 10, 11 and 12 students across the state will be eligible to participate in the study if their school signs up and parents and students provide consent. This program is set to begin in 2017 and conclude in 2018.

The aim of this ambitious project is to test in the the 'herd immunity' in theteenage population. It will not only vaccinate a person, but will also prevent the individual from carrying or spreading it to others.
