Meningitis & chicken pox (varicella) vaccine

Meningitis & chicken pox (varicella) vaccine

Meningitis & chickenpox vaccines should be offered free on the national immunization programme. Meningitis - Due to its severity most paediatricians recommend parents to vaccinate their infants privately against several meningitis strands. Chicken pox - although rarely devastating, it does mean that a parent needs to care for the sick child for 2/3 weeks. If the child is of school age then that is missed time from school. In adults the sickness can be more dangerous. Risks for pregnant women.
