That this House welcomes the 10 point Meningitis Action Plan put forward by Meningitis Now and Meningitis Research Foundation in light of the meningitis petition signed by over 823,000 people; notes the charities' concerns regarding the cost-effectiveness framework and adolescent carriage/intervention study; further notes the weight of evidence given to the Petitions Committee in conjunction with the Health Committee; supports the request for the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation to consider a one-off catch-up vaccination programme for children under five years old and utilise a fairer cost-effectiveness framework; and encourages the Secretary of State for Health to expedite implementation of the 10 point plan put forward by both charities.
