Update on Men B vaccination

Following the recent media coverage about the death of a young girl from invasive meningococcal disease caused by Men B, many Stockport GP practices have had queries from parents about availability of Men B immunisation.

We would like to confirm the national position, and respond to some of the questions that you may have

What is the national policy for Men B immunisation?

The Men B immunisation programme started on 1 September 2015 for babies aged 2 months, i.e. babies born on or after 1 July 2015.

Delivery of the Men B immunisation programme in our GP practices is in line with national policy.

γ€€

Can I vaccinate children born before 1 May 2015 if parents request it?

No. The national stock of Bexsero® should only be used to vaccinate children who are eligible for the NHS vaccination.

What If parents would like to pay for the vaccination?

There are various private clinics that will provide Men B vaccinations privately.

Parents seeking the vaccine privately should be made aware that they will be liable for the full costs of the vaccines and any additional administration charges that the private provider may apply

γ€€

We currently have NO stocks of Men B vaccine for private vaccinations and are NOT holding a waiting list of those that requesting a private immunisation.

We will keep the website updated as our position changes

We do not hold any information about the local private vaccination providers current or anticipated stocks of Men B.
