Tip 3: immunisation schedule 2015

The changes to the 2015 immunisation schedule are:

The addition of MenB vaccine at 2 months, 4 months and 12 months of age.

MenB vaccine should be accompanied by prophylactic paracetamol (3 doses from the time of vaccination, unless contra-indicated) at 2 months and 4 months due to the high incidence of pyrexia.
