New study confirms success of MenB vaccine in the UK

MenB vaccination programme has reduced cases of meningitis and septicaemia in young children by almost two-thirds.

A new study by Public Health England (PHE) shows that infant vaccination against group B meningococcal disease (MenB) has resulted in a significant decline in cases of the disease in young children since the programme was introduced. The research was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
