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 infants commencing vaccination at 2 months of age, MenB vaccine is recommended in a 3-dose schedule at 2, 4 and 12 months of age.
Infants can have their 1st dose of MenB vaccine as early as 6 weeks of age. If the 1st dose of MenB vaccine is given at the age of 6 weeks, infants should still receive their next scheduled doses at 4 months and 12 months of age.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
