Is that the Meningococcal vaccine? It is free. Call your local councils vaccination clinic to find out how to book it in.

if you're ordering via pharmacy is costs.

If it's through the health centre or your GP (who should have stock on hand for under 5 and free,) if you were given a script to get from pharmacist it will cost because its private stock.

Your GP in theory, should have it on hand, but if they don't you need to get it from council health centres, which will be free.
