Meningitis B Action Project
This web site contains helpful materials and resources to help in educating parents and young adults about Meningitis B, including a poster specifically for doctor’s offices.  The message is simple: It takes two types of vaccines to be fully immunized against meningococcal disease: MenACWY and MenB.  While many have received the MenACWY vaccine, few have received MenB due to lack of awareness of its availability.  The site hopes to provide parents and young adults with the information to proactively talk to their healthcare provider about Meningitis B and the vaccine available to help prevent it, and to encourage the medical and education community to inform patients and students about the availability of the Meningitis B vaccine.
