Gold Coast Public Health Unit’s Immunisation important information for adolescents aged between 15 and 19 years old

Hey 2018 school leavers! Congrats on your last few weeks of school life EVER!! We know you're keen to celebrate, but we have one last pre-schoolies task for you to complete - and it could save your life. If you haven't already had yours, now is the perfect time to get your free Meningococcal ACWY vaccine at any of our Community Clinics https://bit.ly/2InAjo9 or your GP. #schoolies2018

 

Some of the highest rates of Meningococcal disease occur in 15 to 19-year-olds, who can transmit the bacteria to people at increased risk, including young children. Parents of teens in this age group who have missed their meningococcal ACWY vaccine are encouraged to email the Public Health Unit at immunisegc@health.qld.gov.au or phone 1800 940 750.

 

For your convenience please see the clinic calendar for the rest of the year.
