Community Service Announcement

Meningitis Centre Australia have been in partnership with the Health Department to create this video about the ACWY vaccine.

The video explains what meningococcal disease is and how quickly you can get it.

There is a roll out program of the vaccine for 15-17 year olds going through the schools now.
