At our private clinics in Birmingham and Leicester, you can book an appointment with one of our friendly GP to find out more about the HiB Vaccine. The Haemophilis B Influenzae type B vaccine (commonly referred to as Hib vaccine) protects against a bacterium which can cause a number of serious illnesses including meningitis, pneumonia and septicaemia. The number of Hib infections has decreased significantly because of routine immunisations given to children since 1992. The small number of cases which do occur, tend to affect at risk adults e.g. those with underlying illnesses.

The Hib vaccine is recommended routinely for babies at 8, 12 and 16 weeks as part of the combined 6-in-1 vaccine. A booster is available at 1 year to provide longer term protection. If you need further information on how you could get a HiB vaccine, contact our team today.
