A year has passed since experts recommended that the government make the Meningitis B vaccine available to all children from 2 months old. In this time the government have failed to agree a price with manufacturer GSK.
“One year on, we appeal that a decision is made imminently,” Dr Ian Maconichie, of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health doctor, told the BBC.
Each year in the UK there are around 1,870 cases of meningitis B, but improved care – and early detection – means that most children can now make a full recovery.
However Meningitis B is still fatal in one out of 10 cases, and roughly one in four people affected by the virus are left with long-term difficulties – such as deafness, amputation, epilepsy and learning difficulties.
At Southdowns clinic in Emsworth we offer the vaccine to everyone from 2 months old.
