Department Of Health Reaches Agreement with GlaxoSmithKline plc on Meningitis Vaccine Bexsero

GlaxoSmithKline has reached an agreement with the United Kingdom's Department of Health (DoH) over the pricing of the firm's meningitis B vaccine Bexsero (meningococcal group-B vaccine [rDNA, component, adsorbed]). The vaccine will be added to the national childhood immunisation scheme, and babies will be immunised first at the age of two months, followed by two more doses.

GlaxoSmithKline Enters into Agreement with the UK Department of Health

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has entered into an agreement with the UK Department of Health to introduce a new vaccine to prevent meningitis caused by meningococcal group B bacteria for all babies in the country. The meningitis B vaccine will be introduced as part of the National Health Service's (NHS) NHS immunization program, which is scheduled to be initiated in September 2015. The vaccine will now be added to the national childhood immunization program, while babies will receive the first vaccine at two months old, followed by two further doses. The agreement offers fair value for the NHS and allows a reasonable return for the company to ensure that it can continue to invest in creating new treatments and vaccines.
