  • Meningococcal ACWY
  • Vaccine Recommendations

If a child without any high-risk conditions received a dose of MenACWY (Menactra, MenQuadfi or Menveo) vaccine at age 10 years does the child need to be revaccinated at age 11–12 years?

No. ACIP considers a dose of MenACWY given to a 10-year-old child to be valid for the first dose in the adolescent series. Doses given before age 10 years should not be counted. The child should receive the second (booster) dose at age 16 years as usual.
