Did you know South Australia has the highest rate of the potentially life threatening meningococcal disease in the country? And, of all meningococcal cases, 80 per cent of infections in Australia are caused by the B strain? The only way to be protected from Meningococcal B is to pay for immunisation through GPs.
In 2017, Year 10, 11 and 12 students across the state will be eligible to participate in a study the University of Adelaide is leading in partnership with SA Health. The study will aim to establish whether when a significant portion of a population is immunised against a disease, society can prevent the transmission of that disease from one person to another and protect those who are not immune. The students who participate in the study in 2017 will be followed up in 2018
