Give vaccine to all our children

Published 20/03/2013

Meningitis UK is urging everyone to join our Meningitis B: Beat It Now campaign to get the new vaccine against the disease available to all children.

It is the most common form of the disease with around 1,870 cases across the country each year. It kills one-in-10 and one-in-three suffer life-changing after-effects.

We want everyone to contact their MP to build political pressure. Please visit www.meningitisUK.org/beatitnow to e-mail your MP and show your support.
