Health secretary: Agreement reached on Meningitis B vaccine

The health secretary has told the BBC that a deal on a cost-effective price for a new Meningitis B vaccine has been reached with the manufacturers and the vaccine should be rolled out this year.

Jeremy Hunt said a change in the price the suppliers were asking for had changed since the company which developed the vaccine was bought by GSK (GlaxoSmithKline).
