Children are routinely offered the vaccine aged three months, 12 months and a booster at 13-15 years. Students aged under-25 are also to be targeted with a catch-up booster, as will anyone this age who hasn’t received the MenC vaccine.
To help health professionals deliver their immunisation programmes safely, Public Health England has produced a meningitis C vaccine poster, to ensure the correct vaccines are used for infants, adolescents and students. The Don’t Mess Up with your MenC Vaccines! poster can be downloaded, printed and displayed.
