MenB vaccine and Paracetamol
From September 2015, a vaccine will be available as part of the NHS childhood immunisation programme, to help protect against MenB disease.
Babies will be offered the MenB vaccine with the other routine vaccinations at two months, four months and 12 months of age.
Fever can be expected after any vaccination, but is more common when the MenB vaccine is given with the other routine vaccines at two and four months. Giving paracetamol will reduce the risk of fever after vaccination. Please visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/menb-vaccine-and-paracetamol for more information.
