Bexsero Vaccine – Men B

Bexsero is a meningococcal Group B (MenB) vaccine which is indicated for the active immunisation of individuals against invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis group B. The vaccine is manufactured using recombinant DNA technology and includes four antigenic proteins to protect against the majority of circulating MenB strains.

For more information on this vaccine please click on the link
http://www.hse.ie/eng/health/immunisation/hcpinfo/OtherVaccines/menbfaq.pdf

If you decide to have your child vaccinated with Bexsero please contact the surgery. Delivery of the vaccine usually takes 3-5 working days. From time to time our supplier AllPhar (sole supplier of this vaccine in Ireland at the moment) can run into shortages so it may take longer to receive the vaccines.

This  vaccine will be part of The National Immunisation schedule from 1st October 2016. It is only eligible free of charge for children born after 1st October 2016.  Therefore any children born before 1st October 2016 and wish to have this vaccine will incur a fee. Fees are outlined below for one child. If you have more than one child we will advise you of the price. For more information on the national immunisation schedule please visit http://www.hse.ie/eng/health/Immunisation/pubinfo/babychildimm/Immschedule/

Total cost 2 doses of Bexsero €300
(This includes cost of 2 doses, Administration fee, carriage fee of the vaccine)

Some children depending on their age require a 3rd dose 1 year after the first. If this is the case the total cost for the 3rd dose €110.

Chicken Pox Vaccine (Varicella)

The chickenpox (varicella) vaccine provides protection against the varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox.
The chickenpox vaccine is not part of the routine childhood vaccination schedule. The vaccine is currently only offered to people who are particularly vulnerable to chickenpox.
The vaccine does not contain thiomersal (mercury).
For more information please click on the link
http://www.hse.ie/eng/health/az/V/Varicella-chickenpox-vaccination/
The chicken pox vaccine is not part of the National Immunisation vaccine so like the Bexsero if you decide you would like your child vaccinated you can contact the surgery. We will order this for your child. It will take 3-5 working days for delivery.
With it not being part of the national immunisation policy there will be a charge for the vaccine.
Total cost €130 (2 doses + administration fee)

For more information on any of the above please do not hesitate to contact the surgery. Please note the supply of these vaccines continues to be short, the latest update from our suppliers is that they may be available at the end of July.  We will continue to keep you updated.
