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.
