Great news for #Meningitis – As reported in the news over the weekend all babies in the UK will soon have access to a vaccine against Meningitis B.
Supporters of the MRF Meningitis Research Foundation are celebrating the good news after a long battle and campaign to get the vaccine offered to babies for free under the NHS. Meningitis is one of the most feared and deadly diseases and campaigners have warned that delays of the Men B vaccine have been putting childrens lives at risk.
The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced that an agreement with the giant drug company GSK Glaxo Smith Kline will mean that the vaccine will now be added to the national childhood immunisation scheme and babies will receive their first vaccine at 2 months old.
