Babies in Wales are to be vaccinated against a strain of Meningitis. Ministers in Wales confirmed the move, saying it would be introduced as soon as it's practical.
Westminster Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Britain would become the first country in the world with a nationwide meningitis B vaccination programme after the Government reached a deal with drug maker GlaxoSmithKline.
The decision follows recent controversy over the Bexsero MenB vaccine after it emerged it was still not available to children despite being recommended by health advisers a year ago.
A Welsh Government spokesman said a price for the vaccine has now been negotiated.
"The Welsh Government has committed to being included in the UK-wide procurement for the vaccine, and to making the vaccination available in Wales as soon as practicable."
The Welsh Government will later launch new plans to reduce the number of children living in poverty in Wales.Read the full story ›
