Motion text

That this House notes that a new vaccine against meningitis B, Bexsero, has been licensed for use in the UK; celebrates this medical breakthrough with the potential to save thousands of lives especially among children aged under five; recognises that the vaccine's optimum impact would be achieved by its inclusion in the Routine Child Immunisation Schedule of the NHS; applauds the Meningitis UK and Meningitis Trust campaign Meningitis B: Beat It Now highlighting the important opportunity to prevent the devastating impact of the most common form of meningitis in the UK; welcomes their new awareness tour with giant mobile billboard and petition ahead of crucial meetings on whether Bexsero should be in the schedule; and urges the Government to take this opportunity to save thousands of lives and prevent life-changing after-effects with a timely positive decision to include Bexsero in the Child Immunisation Schedule.
