Yura Yungi Visit – JEV vaccine support

Japanese Encephalitis Virus was found for the first time in WA at the beginning of the year. Subsequently JEV vaccines are now being offered to populations in high risk areas (Kimberley and Pilbara). AHCWA acknowledged the importance of the additional JEV vaccinations and the workforce challenges experienced by our member services in rolling out additional vaccines.

In response to this, AHCWA offered support to member service Yura Yungi to provide JEV/Flu/Covid vaccinations to community. AHCWA RNs Veronica and Holly travelled to both Halls Creek and Ringer Soak. They worked closely with Yura Yungi to create a plan for vaccinations and outreach (which even included the Winnebago outside IGA!).

Over 35 vaccines were administered across the visit and many yarns were had to promote the importance of vaccination. Valuable time spent yarning with community about the importance of the vaccination as well as the prevention methods, extremely important work.

Veronica and Holly would like to express their gratitude to Yura Yungi for being so welcoming and kind; what a fantastic trip!
