Universal vaccination associated with decreased Canadian cases of most deadly strain of meningitis
Date:3/2/2009

y available in 2001. Previously, adolescents or adults received a different vaccine which provided protection for about three years.

For the study, the 12 pediatric centres involved with the Canadian Immunization Monitoring Program, Active (IMPACT), carried out surveillance in collaboration with local public health officials. IMPACT meningococcal surveillance is administered by the Canadian Paediatric Society and funded by Sanofi Pasteur. Its surveillance centres are located in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and BC.

"What's needed next is a vaccine against meningococcal B," says Dr. Bettinger. "This is the Holy Grail of vaccine research."
