It’s clear from our name that we are all about action. But we also know that we can’t do it alone. Thankfully, we have you on our side!
The B-team is our incredible community of Meningitis B advocates helping us increase awareness of Meningitis B and Meningitis B vaccination in their own communities - through big and small actions alike.
B-team members are the first to know about new resources to help them advocate, opportunities to get involved, and much, much more. You’ll also be invited to participate in calls with our founders Patti and Alicia to receive valuable advocacy training, meet other advocates, share your progress and brainstorm new ideas. We always have a lot going on here at the Meningitis B Action Project, so every quarter, we will be in touch with new opportunities for our B-team advocates to get involved.

Your First Mission: Day of Action Against Meningitis B (April 24)
Day of Action
Against Meningitis B
April 24, 2019
Note: While this year we are focusing our efforts on the United States, if you are outside the US, you are welcome to participate. The more action, the better.
On April 24, World Meningitis Day, our B-team has committed to ensuring AT LEAST one action against Meningitis B in every single state in the United States.
That’s 50 states, for those of you who are counting. To make it happen, we need you to commit to one action that you will do on April 24th to raise awareness of MenB and the vaccine available to help prevent it.
