Meningitis has no warning; it comes from nowhere and vaccination is the only answer

I lost my husband, Kevin, to meningococcal septicaemia in January 2000, just five hours after being admitted to hospital. I have been supported by Meningitis Now ever since.

Meningitis has no warning; it comes from nowhere and vaccination is the only answer. When I found out about the vaccine I thought ‘thank goodness that fewer people will have to go through what we have been through.’ The Government has a moral obligation to protect the British public from this awful disease.
