Please join us for this Public Health Update on Japanese Encephalitis & COVID-19.

Japanese Encephalitis is a rare but serious illness caused by the Japanese Encephalitis virus (JEV). It is spread to humans by infected mosquitoes. It is a newly emerging disease in NSW and is spread when a mosquito bites an animal (such as pigs or waterbirds) that has the Japanese Encephalitis virus and then this mosquito bites a human. We will cover current vaccines and eligibility for funded vaccines, as well as recommended patient investigations.
