More About
Meningitis B

Meningococcal disease can progress very quickly and can be difficult to diagnose, so it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you think you or someone you know may have the disease.

The meningococcal B vaccine (also known as the MenB vaccine) is a vaccine that protects against infection with the type B strain of the meningococcal bacteria. This type is responsible for a significant proportion of meningococcal disease cases, particularly in certain parts of the world.

The meningococcal B vaccine  is available for individuals who are at increased risk of infection, such as those with certain medical conditions or those who have had close contact with someone with meningococcal disease. The vaccine is usually given as a series of two or three injections, depending on the specific vaccine used. It is generally well tolerated, with the most common side effects being pain and redness at the injection site.

If you think you may be at increased risk of meningococcal disease and are interested in getting the MenB vaccine, talk to your healthcare provider. They can help you determine if the vaccine is appropriate for you and can provide you with more information about the potential benefits and risks.
