Children should be vaccinated against Men C at 3 and 12 months, with a booster injection in their early teens. The meningitis group C infection can cause meninges and septicaemia so if you’re unsure if your child is protected talk to the experts at Pall Mall Medical for advice. The meningitis C vaccine (MenC) protects against infection by meningococcal group C bacteria, which can cause meningitis and septicaemia.
For children aged 12 months and over, adolescents and adults, only one dose of the vaccine is needed.
For infants under 12 months, three doses are required.
Note: MenC does not protect against other types of meningitis caused by other bacteria or by viruses.
