DO YOU KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT MENINGOCOCCAL DISEASE AND HOW TO HELP PREVENT IT?

Meningococcal disease is a potentially devastating infection that can progress rapidly, causing serious disability or death within 24 hours.

 

All of us at Floreat Medical are pro-vaccination of infants and children. In the case of Meningococcal this extends to adolescents too. There are a number of strains of Meningococcal and two main vaccines – MenB and MenACWY.

Do not assume that if your child has had one vaccine that they are protected. Immunisation with both MenB vaccine AND Men ACWY is needed. See more.

Contact reception on 9387 6000 to book an appointment with your doctor and the nurse for immunisation of your child.

 

See how Floreat Medical is doing to immunise our community against MenACWY!
