Teenagers And Meningitis

EDM number 951 in 2015-16, proposed by David Simpson on 13/01/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Diseases and Vaccination.

That this House notes that teenagers are the second most at-risk group, after babies and toddlers, for contracting meningitis; expresses concern at national statistics revealing that less than half of those eligible for a free new vaccine have received it; and appeals to the Government to energise the meningitis awareness campaign that could save hundreds of lives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
