Meningitis B vaccine not available at Springfield HospitalWednesday 24 February 2016
Following the recent media coverage about meningitis B we have had a great number of enquiries regarding the vaccine.
Whilst we do normally offer the vaccination the recent media coverage has created an increased demand and national shortage of the vaccine. Therefore, unfortunately we now only have enough stock to complete the vaccinations of children who had already started a course of treatment with us.
We have been advised that new stocks are unlikely to become available until June or July. In the meantime the Meningitis Research Foundation's website has a lot of useful information so it may be worth taking a look www.meningitis.org
We apologise for any inconvenience, however, this is unfortunately beyond our control.
