Brain inflammation: the vaccine is low

The fact that a deficiency vaccine against meningococcal B that causes meningitis is not the first occurrence - he said Pуta Gyцrgy, chairman of the Association of Home Pediatricians at Inforbud. The vaccine has to be paid for, but even more parents are asking their home doctor to vaccinate their child. With the increased need they cannot keep up, the problem has returned since last year, and new doses are quickly running out. meningococcal strain B and C are responsible for the disease in 99 percent of cases, C stock is free for infants, but B stock is payable (not a little: vaccine is over 100,000 forints). affects the parents of infants because they need to be vaccinated more frequently. There is no tragedy if the injection is delayed, as resistance develops as soon as the first dose is administered, and repeat safety is a must. The bigger problem is if you do not start the vaccine at all, or if you do not vaccinate the vaccine later.
