Immunisation and Vaccination Services

Japanese Encephalitis Virus Vaccination Clinics

If you are eligible for a free JEV vaccine, speak to your General Practitioner (GP), pharmacist or Aboriginal Medical Service about getting vaccinated today. You can check eligibility requirements here: https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/jev/Pages/vaccination.aspx

People who meet the eligibility criteria should make an appointment with their GP, pharmacist or Aboriginal Medical Service and let them know it is for the Japanese Encephalitis vaccine as they may require a few days' notice to order the vaccine.

Please note: some providers may charge an administration or consultation fee. Be sure to check if this applies to you.
