Meningococcal B vaccine
Give children under 2 a dose of Paracetamol 30 minutes before they are vaccinated for Meningococcal B, or as soon as possible afterwards. This offsets the common side effect of fever after the vaccination.
You can pay for your vaccinations:
- online when you book, or
- by EFTPOS or credit card at the immunisation session.
We don't accept cash, cheques, American Express or Diners Club cards.
Some private health funds will provide refunds for vaccinations. We will give you a receipt to make your claim.
Non-Medicare cardholders are charged the same amount for these optional vaccines.
