Meningitis B separately?

I have been told the meningitis B vaccine has to be given at 8 weeks along with other injections!! I said I want to do it separately cos it is a live vaccine and along with other vaccines it is far too much but they said either I get it with his usual eight week jabs or do not get it at all. Is that true? Surely it is up to me when my son can get his jabs?

If you source it privately then you can choose. Or perhaps get it via private prescription and pay for the additional time needed
