Supporting Meningitis B Vaccine

I shared Adam's story of infection with Meningitis and lending my support for the petition asking the government to extend the Meningitis B vaccine to all children under eleven.

If you haven't yet signed the petition calling on the UK government to inform women of the risks of Group b Strep and to test them for it, then please do so here and then share widely:  UK Parliament Petition  There is also a petition on Change.org.

If you know any pregnant women, or are pregnant yourself, then please visit the Group b Strep Support website for information on this potentially devastating, but preventable infection:  Group B Strep Support
