Summerdale Medical has received a supply of free Meningococcal ACWY Vaccines for people aged between 2 years and up to 21 years of age (have to be born after 1 August 1997).

We are running specific Meningococcal Vaccine Clinics. You may ring to book into one of these sessions with a doctor. This is a Bulk Billed service.

As with all vaccination clinics, this is a brief consult for a vaccination only.

The Department of Health have still to inform us of when we are likely to receive our vaccines for the 6 week to under 2 years category.

Meningococcal B is still a private script and you will need a doctor’s appointment to get scripts and work out a vaccination schedule.

Meningococcal ACWY Vaccine

This morning the government has announced a funded program for Meningococcal vaccinations for children aged over 6 weeks, up to 21 years. This is for the

strains A,C,W,Y. This program is being initiated in Hobart and is  in it’s very early stages of being rolled out. Launceston and  Summerdale Medical  have not received the funded vaccines yet.

Delivery dates are determined by Public Health, therefore we are unable to advise our patients of a commencement date.

Please continue to check our news feed or phone the surgery between 9am-5pm weekdays after Wednesday 1st August. We are hopeful that by this date we will be able to provide our patients with more information.

Meningococcal B is still a private script and you will need a doctor’s appointment to get scripts and work out a vaccination schedule.
