The first ever wide-ranging Men B (meningococcal B meningitis and septicaemia) vaccine has been licensed by the European Commission, which judged the vaccine, called Bexsero® as safe and effective. Licensure meant that the vaccine was authorised for use and governments could choose to offer it.

Currently the NHS has not made the vaccine available to children due to cost considerations – to the disappointment of many doctors.

You can find out more about this on the BBC website where there is an interesting short film and report about it.

We also have a page on our website about Meningitis B  and we offer the Meningitis B vaccine privately.

We are keen for you to make an informed decision and would recommend you research the vaccine further before proceeding.
