I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, apologies if not. I've just looked at the meningitis B information and thought I should highlight that some of the info is incorrect. It says that babies are now routinely vaccinated on the NHS in the UK.

That's not the case in Wales. Health is devolved and the same decision to mass vaccinate has not been made. I don't know what the situation is in Scotland or NI but this needs updating just in case some parents think that their child has been vaccinated when they haven't.

Here is as good as any place, I guess - but perhaps this is one to also contact MNHQ directly by email to discuss ? (

Thank you. I couldn't find the information last night. I'll email now.
