Meningococcal B Vaccination
Several parents have asked me about the NEW Meningitis B vaccination, Bexsero.
You may have heard about it in the news. There was a delay in its introduction while the Government wrangled with the drug company about its price. It has been added into the standard childhood vaccination program a few months ago with only a limited catch-up program for slightly older children.
The parents who have approached me have children who are too old to get the vaccine on the NHS but they recognise the value of this vaccination and they want their children to have it.
I have made an agreement with the Acle Medical Centre and their on-site Pharmacy. They are willing to stock the vaccine and dispense it on a Private prescription for administration by me at my Private Clinic. The vaccine must be kept between 2-8'C, so a centre with an on-site pharmacy is ideal.
If you would like to know more and perhaps protect you little one with this vaccine then you have come to the right place.
