Updated: Recommendations for use of Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccines

Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)

Recommendation for Routine Vaccination of Persons aged 11 through 18 Years

ACIP recommends routine vaccination of persons with quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine at age 11 or 12 years, with a booster dose at age 16 years. After a booster dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine, antibody titers are higher than after the first dose and are expected to protect adolescents through the period of increased risk through age 21 years. For adolescents who receive the first dose at age 13 through 15 years, a one-time booster dose should be administered, preferably at age 16 through 18 years, before the peak in increased risk. Persons who receive their first dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine at or after age 16 years do not need a booster dose. Routine vaccination of healthy persons who are not at increased risk for exposure to N. meningitides is not recommended after age 21 years.

Meningitis B

Your Child may only be half protected against Meningitis B

This 1 minute video educates parents and adolescents on the incidence of MenB among adolescents in the US and informs them about the availability of two different types of vaccines to help protect against the most common disease causing strains of meningococcal disease.

There are two vaccinations for meningitis. The older vaccine covers meningitis serotypes A, C, W and Y. A newer meningitis vaccine was released in the U.S. in 2015 that covers Meningitis B, which is the serotype involved in the student meningitis cases at SCU. Please take this opportunity to review your immunization status against meningitis. Ideally you should have received both meningitis vaccines.
