MenB vaccination: JCVI publish recommendations
Delegates who attended the OVG immunisation seminar on 20th March are reminded that the MenB vaccine was an academic debate and did not represent the real views of either of the debaters or the Oxford Vaccine Group.
On Friday 21st March, the JCVI published a position statement on the use of meningococcal B vaccine in the UK at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/fil...
This statement includes additional information not available at the time of the debate that makes many of the issues discussed redundant. The OVG team hope that delegates found the debate useful in enhancing their understanding of the complexities of decisions to introduce new vaccines.
