Correcting vaccine misinformation is a difficult process (3) Meningitis vaccination

10 January, 2020

Hi Simon,

I look forward to seeing the paper on interventions to improve vaccination uptake among adolescents. We've been struggling with low uptake rates of MenACWY in this group but turned a corner by targeting parents (mothers specifically). NHS data in the UK from market research showed that they remained the health-keepers of adolescents - actually well into their child's adulthood!

We've also worked to improve opportunistic vaccination.

Best wishes,
