All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 2 months to 19 years are strongly recommended to receive MenB vaccine
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 2 months to 19 years are strongly recommended to receive a course of MenB vaccine.
The dose schedule for MenB vaccine depends on the brand and the person’s age when they start the vaccine course.
For children aged <2 years, see Infants and children aged <2 years are strongly recommended to receive MenB vaccine.
People aged 2–9 years should receive 2 doses of Bexsero, 8 weeks apart.
People aged ≥10 years can receive 2 doses of either MenB vaccine:
- 2 doses of Bexsero, with 8 weeks between doses, or
- 2 doses of Trumenba, with 6 months between doses
There is no preference for either Bexsero or Trumenba for people aged ≥10 years.
Bexsero and Trumenba are not interchangeable. The same vaccine should be used for both vaccine doses.
