Description
The vaccine works similar to the other vaccines for bacteria like this. Bits of meningococcal proteins are attached to carriers that introduce the proteins to immunological cells which analyse and then produce antibodies against these proteins. These antibodies are then added to the bank of memory antibodies to be activated when there is contact with this protein in the future.
These meningococcal proteins – though inactive – are still potent and so this vaccine will cause side effects as the immune system fires up the antibodies. These typical side effects include fever, localised soreness at the sight of the injection and irritability for a day or two. This vaccine is therefore recommended to be given with panadol.
