Due to unexpected global demand for Bexsero during 2015, we are experiencing supply constraints during the first half of this year.
Although vaccination through the NHS childhood programme has been prioritised and is unaffected, we have unfortunately had to ask private clinics temporarily to not start new courses of vaccination.
Children who have already started their course of the vaccine privately should still be able receive their follow up doses.
We know the unexpectedly high demand for the vaccine reflects the importance parents have placed on protecting their children from meningitis B. We hope to have improving supply from summer 2016 and we are working hard to increase capacity in 2017.
