The meningitis ACWY vaccine is now given to all kids at 12 months, with a catch up program in year 10.
The Federal Government haven't yet funded Meningitis B vaccine, but recently South Australia added it to their state schedule.

Meningitis B vaccine is available privately, and you may be able to recoup some of the cost via Extras health insurance policies.

Meningitis is a rare, but deadly disease. There are about 200 cases per year in Australia. Vaccination greatly reduce your families risk.
