Vaccines protecting against anaphylaxis will be administered by NHS nurses to people who suffer severe reactions to bee and wasp stings under new guidance.

The vaccine called Pharmalgen, which aims to prevent people from going into anaphylactic shock after they have been stung, is to be approved by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Is this different then what is curently available in North America?

When ds saw an allergist he refused to test for insects for several reasons, one of which was that he is too young for the shots. So, some shots have been available here for several years.
