Text size Aa Aa

The World Health Organisation is calling for vaccine production to be increased to ward off a potential outbreak of meningitis.

12000 cases of meningitis C have been reported in Niger and Nigeria in the first six months of 2015. 800 people have died.

There are calls for five million extra doses to be produced before the 2016 season starts in January.
