In Victoria a free school-based meningococcal ACWY vaccination program commenced in term 2 of the 2017 school year for students in Years 10,11 and 12 or age equivalent (15 to 19 years old) and ceases on 31 December 2017.

Meningococcal disease is any infection caused by bacteria called Neisseria meningitidis (also known as meningococcal bacteria). Although meningococcal disease is uncommon, it is very serious. About 10 per cent of the population carry meningococcal bacteria in their throat without becoming unwell. These people are known as ‘carriers’.

Invasive meningococcal disease occurs when these bacteria, which usually live in the throat, enter the blood stream to cause septicaemia (infection in the blood, also known as ‘bacteremia’) or meningitis, (inflammation of the membrane covering of the brain). Occasionally, severe infection can also occur in the joints, throat, lungs or intestines.

Meningococcal bacteria are passed from person to person by close, prolonged household and intimate contact. In a small number of people, the bacteria can enter the bloodstream and cause invasive meningococcal disease, which can develop very quickly and causes death in about five to 10 per cent of cases
