The nurse allegedly gained permission from the private clinic to conduct the vaccination because the teenager was the son of a friend.
A second medical practitioner had to witness the vaccination under protocol, with that doctor then reporting her to authorities.
Western Australia Police arrested the woman at her home in Byford before charging her with the offence 'Gains Benefit by Fraud'.
