    Done, and shared on Facebook. It's so sad the death of the poor little girl! Let's just hope all parents get their children vaccinated now to stop the awful disease x

    Thats the meningitis D got when J was 6m old and nearly died with.. Be good to get a vaccine. Well it was between Mengecoccal and pneumococcal (couldnt get a culture of exact strain)

    In saying that, they do say the viral virus lies dormant in our noses and I believe thats how D got his (worked in a inky factory and was always picking out dirt)

    Luckily neither of us caught it, but david just survived and age worked in his favour so although he stroked, he didnt have any longterm damage. So different for babies though.

    We have a 3 yr old in the family and they have paid privately for their daughter to have the injection. It was a bit expensive but as they said it was worth it. I have signed and also passed this on. X
