Meningococcal Group B (MenB) is one of the leading cause of meningitis and septicaemia in Ireland, and yet Bexsero, the new vaccine that has been developed to prevent against the disease, is only available privately to those born after October 2016.

For those who would like to get the vaccine privately, Bexsero is available on private prescription through your GP or by asking your pharmacist to order it for you. This can cost up to €350 for the first and booster injection per child.

The MenB vaccine not currently part of the Childhood Immunisation Scheme for those born post October 2016, the final decision to fund the inclusion of a new vaccine into the childhood immunisation schedule would be made by the Department of Health.

Please sign and share to include subsidised or free vaccinations to our older children and vulnerable teens and adults.
