Meningitis B Vaccine - Bexsero
The Men B vaccine will protect your baby against infection by meningococcal group B bacteria.
These bacteria are responsible for about 9 in every 10 meningococcal infections in young children.
Meningococcal infections can be very serious, causing meningitis and sepsis. This can lead to severe brain damage, amputations and, sometimes, death.
The UK was the first group of countries in the world to introduce a MenB vaccine into its national programme using the Bexsero vaccine.
Bexsero is a non-live vaccine, safe to give from the age of 2 months.
Vaccine Course: 2 doses at least one month apart.
Bexsero - Cost: £150 per dose (which includes the appointment fee)
