Meningitis B Vaccination

The Scottish Government has announced that all infants in Scotland will be offered the Meningococcal B (MenB) through the NHS as part of the routine childhood immunisation programmed from 1st September 2015.

Futher information can be found by visiting following link:

 As part of this vaccination it is important to control fever in the child afterwards. This is done by giving the child a dose of paracetamol just before vaccination followed by two doses at regular intervals.

 Parents of children are asked to attend the pharmacy before the vaccination is given to collect a free paracetamol suspension prescription to be used to manage any post-vaccination fever.
