Menningitis B Vaccine

Temenos Medical Centre can now offer the Meningitis B vaccine to children whose parents wish to avail of this service.

This vaccination is not available as part of the National Childhood Immunisations program as yet although it is hoped that vaccination against Men B will become routine soon.

The minimum age for vaccination is 2 months.

If you are interested in having your children vaccinated please contact the surgery.

The vaccine (Bexero) has been in short supply for the past few months and may become so again.

 

The cost of the vaccine is €300 for the first 2 shots and €100 for the 3rd shot (only needed if the first dose is given before the age of 2 years).  2-3 shots will be required depending on the age of your child.
