Correction: Vaccination for adolescents
The article ‘Vaccination for adolescents’ by Ms Cristyn Davies and Dr S. Rachel Skinner published in the Jan/Feb 2021 issue of Medicine Today (pages 57 to 61) and the Adolescent Health Supplement (pages 15 to 20) contains two errors in Table 1 entitled ‘Recommended adolescent vaccinations in Australia’.
(1) The Table should indicate that meningococcal B vaccination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adolescents aged 10 to 19 years is NOT funded
by the NIP.
(2) The Table contains the most up-to-date advice from the Australian Immunisation Handbook (updated 2020); however, some recommendations may differ from the Product Information. This has been indicated accordingly in the Table.
We apologise for these errors and any confusion it may have caused. The corrected version of the article is available at the Medicine Today website.
