Drug company sponsors meningitis charity

I just wanted to remind you that the National Meningitis Trust has Wyeth as one of its sponsors.

In its recent newsletter, the Trust repudiated claims that the C vaccine may have serious side effects.

A few pages later, a small article read: "Long term partner Wyeth Vaccines is the sponsor of our national meningitis conference in September and will also be sponsoring website pages and symptoms cards. As one of the manufacturers of the new conjugate C vaccine, there is a natural affinity between our two organisations, and we are delighted to be working with the company on these key projects".

It is clear that the public can no longer trust the National Meningitis Trust to give an objective view of the vaccine and its risks. Caroline Long, via e-mail
