Fellowship Award

Meningitis B Vaccine

Supplies of Meningitis B vaccine are only available through the NHS of which there are very limited supplies.   More supplies expected summer 2016.

Meningitis B Vaccine (Bexsero) – There has been an unprecedented request for this vaccination in the last week   We have attempted to obtain supplies directly from GSK unsuccessfully.  The NHS is also short of supplies.  Apparently the situation should improve in the summer of 2016 and apparently should be better in 2017.    Meanwhile please remember that in an average year there are probably only 160 cases of Meningitis B in a population of 300 million in the US (a rate of 5 cases in 10 million population – a rare illness) and that most cases respond to antibiotics.  The risk to your children from Men B is extremely low.
