P-05-693 Give Every Child in Wales the Meningitis B Vaccine for Free

Under consideration

This petition was submitted by Rhian Cecil, having collected 1,195 signatures.


Petition Wording

Health is completely devolved to Wales. We ask the Assembly and Mark Drakeford to change the age range that all children receive the vaccine .

All children are at risk from this terrible infection, yet the Government in Wales only vaccinate 2-5 month olds. There needs to be a rollout programme to vaccinate all children, at least up to age 11. Meningococcal infections can be very serious, causing MENINGITIS, SEPTICAEMIA & DEATH
