Matt Dawson's meningitis vaccine drive gets Belfast Telegraph's backing
The decision by former England rugby international Matt Dawson and his wife to back a public meningitis vaccine campaign has given a further boost to this most worthy of causes.
The former sports star revealed his baby son had survived the deadly disease, and underlined the heartache he felt during the boy's battle for life.
The latest campaign to have the vaccine made available to all children, and not just those under one year, attracted huge national support following the recent tragic death of little Faye Burdett. It is a campaign which has our total support.
