Hib Men C vaccine!

hib men blog

Hello lovely Health Hub friends and patients.

We had an interesting vaccination request today for the Hib Men C jab. The Hib/Men C vaccine is given as a single injection to boost your baby’s protection against two different diseases Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and meningitis C.

This was unsual for us as it is included in the NHS course of vaccines for little ones in the 5-in-1 vaccine at 8, 12 and 16 weeks old, and the Men C vaccine which they had at 12 weeks.

However, this particular parent had, had such a great experience with the vaccines being administered separately for her previous child, she felt it much more beneficial to get them done in this way.

The Hib/Men C vaccine is very safe. It’s inactivated which means it doesn’t contain any live organisms so there is no risk of catching the diseases against which it protects.

This booster ensures longer-term protection from Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib) and meningitis C infections. It also makes sure that disease levels remain low in the general population.

This is another example of Health Hub’s fantastic request service on vaccinations. The patient contacted us directly regarding her query and within a couple of days we were able to administer this specific course of vaccine much to her satisfaction.

Do not delay! Contact Health Hub today.
