‘4CMenB’ is a meningococcal group B vaccine.
This vaccine is given to individuals from 2 months of age and older to help protect against disease caused by bacteria called Neisseria Meningitidis group B.
The B-strain of meningococcal disease has caused the most cases of the infection in New South Wales this year but a vaccine for the illness still isn’t eligible under the Immunisation Schedule.
NSW Health has revealed 15 of the 21 cases to date this year were meningococcal B.
It comes after NSW Health issued a warning this week encouraging the public to be aware of symptoms.
