The “five in one” vaccine offered to babies is to be replaced with a “six in one” immunisation for babies born from today

 

“Until today, only children at high risk of hepatitis B would be immunised,” said PHE’s head of immunisation Dr Mary Ramsay.

“The introduction of Hexavalent vaccine means that all children will now be routinely protected against this serious infection, which is a major cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer in later life.

“The Hexavalent vaccine has been extensively tested and shown to be safe and is widely used internationally with millions of doses being given around the world.”
