Event countdown

Immunisation Coalition is a CPD education provider under the RACGP CPD Program

About this education

The Australian Department of Health and Aged Care has declared JEV a Communicable Disease Incident of National Significance. Since 1 January 2021 there have been 45 human cases of JEV notified*. Sadly, 7 people have died as a result of JEV (2 in NSW, 2 in SA, 1 in VIC, 1 in QLD, 1 in NT).

This webinar provides timely and relevant education on Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV) vaccination for:

  • travellers going overseas to countries with known cases
  • domestic travellers visiting regions where conditions favour JEV outbreaks
  • communities living in areas of known historical outbreaks
  • frontline healthcare workers where JEV has been reported


Identify strategies to minimise infection during flood-borne outbreaks and steps that could be taken in primary care to better protect the community.


Recall the symptoms, diagnosis and mode of transmission for the Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV).

By the end of this activity, you will be able to:


Highlight the importance of JEV vaccination for travellers going overseas and in local community areas where flood-borne outbreaks regularly occur.


Identify key causes of historical JEV outbreaks, where in Australia this virus is most prevalent and why.


Review ATAGI recommendations for vaccine eligibility and indications across the different age groups and patient conditions

This was an excellent outline of dyslipidaemia management by both presenters. The best on the subject that I have been to in the last 2 years. Clear, concise and useful.
