Two new vaccination programmes will soon be delivered by general practice, to provide critically important vaccination to babies and young people. The programmes are:

  • meningococcal B (MenB) infants
  • meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) 18 years on 31 August.

The MenB programme means that England becomes the first country in the world to begin a national and publicly funded MenB immunisation programme. 

NHS Employers is pleased to have reached agreement on behalf of NHS England and Public Health England with the BMA’s General Practitioners Committee.
