MENINGITIS B VACCINE

MENINGITIS B VACCINE

Meningitis B Vaccine Bexsero is available at our private clinics in Liverpool & Chester.

The Meningitis B vaccine called Bexsero is licensed in the UK for use in the prevention of a serious cause of meningitis. Bexsero offers protection against the bacteria Neisseria meningitidis group B.

In children and adults, meningitis usually causes a high fever, vomiting and dislike of bright lights or altered mental state. In babies it can be difficult to gauge symptoms.
