New Vaccine for Babies Protects Against Meningococcal Disease


Infants and children are already given a series of immunizations to protect them against serious childhood diseases. Now, a British team of researchers has developed a vaccine that protects children against meningococcal disease, a disease that affects between 1400 -2000 babies each year in the United States.

The new vaccine was given to 421 healthy babies and produced immunity against four strains of meningococcal disease and was well tolerated by the babies’ bodies.

What do you think about this new vaccine?
