• Meningococcal B
  • Vaccine Recommendations

Are the two MenB vaccines interchangeable?

No. The ACIP meningococcal serogroup B vaccine recommendations state that the same vaccine (either Bexsero by GSK or Trumenba by Pfizer) must be used for all doses in the MenB series, including booster doses. If the brand of a previous dose is unavailable or cannot be determined, restart the primary series with the available brand. The pentavalent MenABCWY product Penbraya (Pfizer) contains MenB-Fhbp (Trumenba) as its MenB component; therefore, Penbraya should only be used in series with Trumenba.
