B Part of It NT

B Part of It NT is a research study offering the free licenced and recommended meningococcal B vaccine, Bexsero, to young people aged 14 to 19 in the Northern Territory. The vaccine will protect young people from meningococcal B, while the study will collect information that could help inform if the vaccination may offer protection against gonorrhoea too.

In 2021 and 2022, young people aged 14 to 19 in the NT can join the study by enrolling through their school (if they are in year 10, 11 or 12) or community health clinic. To complete the study young people will need to participate in three visits and have two doses of the Bexsero vaccine, two months apart, as well as offer two throat swabs, and complete two short surveys.

The Bexsero vaccine is licenced for use in Australia and is available now to people in the NT, however there is a cost for those who receive it outside of this study.
