MenB and MenACWY programmes


Public Health England has issued a set of slides that provide detailed training for health professionals on the new meningococcal B and meningococcal ACWY immunisation programmes.

The MenACWY vaccine is being introduced in response to an increase in cases of invasive meningococcal disease capsular group W (MenW) disease. This vaccine will provide direct protection to the vaccinated cohort and, by reducing carriage of MenW, will also provide indirect protection to unvaccinated children and adults.

For details see: PHE
