Meningitis B Vaccine

We have understandably had a lot of queries from parents regarding the MenB vaccine.

Unfortunately we cannot provide it to children who are not eligible under the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisations criteria. Parents whose children are not eligible as part of the national programme can in theory access the vaccine via a private provider.

We have been informed though that there are very limited supplies of the vaccine outside of the national programme and any existing stock cannot be used privately. We would also encourage all eligible children to have the vaccination when invited. We would advise all parents to be aware of the symptoms and signs of meningitis. Click here for more informaion.
