Bexsero (Meningococcal B) Vaccine March 2017 Update

There continues to be an Australia-wide shortage of the Bexsero (meningococcal B) vaccine due to an increase in global demand since October 2016.

Bexsero is a multi-component Meningococcal B vaccine and is not currently available on the National Immunisation Program.

Fountain Street General Practice’s current stock has been allocated to patients who have already commenced the vaccine schedule whilst those on our waiting list will have doses pre-allocated to them so they can complete the schedule once they begin.

GSK and Australia’s TGA expect supplies will stabilise by July 2017.

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes our patients.
