  • Meningitis B Vaccine

    Posted: 27.08.2015 | Author: Dr J Millar

    Meningitis B now accounts for 80% of meningitis cases in the UK. Infection is transmitted by droplet spread and respiratory secretions and usually needs either frequent or prolonged contact.
    The meningitis B vaccine is being released for NHS UK use in 2015. The NHS will cover the most at risk children first e.g. those in the first year of life and they will be vaccinated at 8 weeks, 16 weeks and 1 year. All children with a birthday from 1/5/15 will be offered the vaccine through NHS.
    Babies who are due to get this vaccine will be invited by Child Health to attend the Immunisation clinic on a Thursday morning at the Practice.
