Petition Re introduce the MenC vaccine for babies aged 12 weeks of age.

From July 2016, the MenC vaccine for 12 week old babies was discontinued from the NHS childhood vaccination programme.

More details

In a letter to Public Health England in March 2016 The Joint Committee on Vaccination (JCVI) recommended that infants aged 12 weeks no longer require the vaccination against meningococcal serogroup C (MenC) due to the success of the immunisation programme that started in 1999.
One case is one too many and today there is a baby girl in Bradford fighting for her life after contracting MenC at the age of 10 months.
