As of September 2015, babies born after 1st July 2015 are offered the Meningitis B vaccine as part of their routine NHS vaccine schedule. There is currently no proposed catch up regime for children born prior to this. We provide the meningitis B vaccine to any child or adult, but provide a service with a difference. We give you 30 minutes with a doctor during your first vaccination to fully discuss the risks/benefits and interactions of the drug. We also organise your follow up appointment with you.
Most importantly, however, we give the vaccination in a hospital setting, where trained doctors and nurses are on hand to look after any reactions or complications that might occur as a result of a vaccination. We also provide follow-up care with a doctor if there are any concerns after the vaccine has been given. Overall, we believe that your child’s safety and wellbeing is the most important thing. We look to offer a complete package of care; we do not just give the vaccine, but we make sure you are happy with the service, and your child is safe.
