Following a year-long campaign by Meningitis Now, the Department of Health announced on 21st March 2014 that it will introduce a new Meningitis B vaccine (Bexsero) into the childhood immunisation programme in the UK. Read the full press release from March 2014.
In August 2014 the Department of Health confirmed that negotiations with drug company Novartis to secure a price for the meningitis B vaccine, had begun.
Despite repeated requests for information, we do not know when the vaccine will be implemented. On 4th November we are meeting MPs in Westminster.
We want to keep meningitis high on the political health agenda and to make sure that:
Support our campaign by getting in touch with your local MP, AM, MSP or MLA.
We are committed to bringing in the B vaccine
We are proud of the role we played in influencing the decision making process, the voice of our supporters made a real difference. We know it comes too late for many, but our legacy is that future generations will be protected.
