  • Meningococcal ACWY
  • For People with Risk Factors

I have an otherwise healthy 26-year-old patient with HIV infection who received one dose of MenACWY three years ago. Should he receive one or two doses now? Will he need booster doses later?

It is not necessary to restart the MenACWY series. Give the person one dose of MenACWY vaccine now. This dose represents a delayed second dose in the primary series (a 2-dose primary series recommended for people with HIV infection). The patient will subsequently need booster doses every 5 years.
