Are your kids protected from Meningococcal A+C?
As recommended by the General Department of Preventive Medicine under the Ministry of Health, meningococcal epidemics usually increase during the winter-spring season. Meningitis is an acute infectious disease caused by Neisseria meningtidis.
Healthy people of all ages can develop meningococcal disease, but they are most common in infants from 3 months to 5 years of age and young adults aged 14-20 years.
Meningococcal infection can be transmitted by sharing cups, drinking glasses, living quarters, schools, kindergartens, daily activities, etc.
Group A or C meningococcus may provoke serious and sometimes lethal infections, such as meningitis or septicemia. The disease can be transmitted by droplets, so the best preventive measure for children is vaccination.
At HFH, Meningoccocal A + C Vaccine is produced by SANOFI PASTEUR, France. This vaccine is used to prevent diseases caused by the bacteria Neisseria meingitidis (Group A and C) in adults and children from the age of two years.
