Japanese B Encephalitis Vaccine

Japanese B Encephalitis Vaccine

 

This is a nasty viral illness that is spead by the bite of the Culex Mosquito, the virus can cause widespread inflammation in the body in the heart, lungs and liver initially causing fever, headache, diarrhoea, tiredness and general aches and pains.

More seriously the virus can spread to the brain causing convulsions and permanent neurological problems if the virus spreads to the brain the mortality rate can be over 30%.

Luckily there is now a vaccine available in the UK that gives a good immune response, it is well tolerated and is typically given in 2 doses 28 days apart.

More details about Japanese B Encephalitis Vaccine and the Ixario® vaccine can be found here on the manufacturer’s website.
