Bexsero (meningococcal B) vaccine availability

While we increased supply of Bexsero (meningococcal B) vaccine significantly this year, it still isn’t meeting demand and we have been working hard to bring more doses into the country.

GSK is bringing an additional 200,000 doses of Bexsero into Australia.  The doses will be available from pharmacies and GP surgeries from the start of June.

We understand it has been distressing for parents who want to protect their children against meningococcal B but haven’t been able to access the vaccine.  We hope these additional doses will go along way to meet the current demand.

Families can expect to pay in the range $120-140 per dose of Bexsero depending on which pharmacy they visit.

Please visit the TGA website for ongoing updates to supply.
