Infant vaccination schedule leads to significant fall in meningitis B

24 Feb 2020Registered users

The infant vaccination programme against meningitis B introduced in the UK in 2015 has been highly effective, a study from Public Health England has confirmed. The research team evaluated the effect of infant vaccination on the incidence of meningococcal group B disease during the first three years of the programme from September 2015 to August 2018. There was a 75% reduction in cases of meningitis B in age groups that were fully eligible for vaccination.
