  • Vaccine Recommendations

Several healthy adult college students from outside the U.S. (ages 24 years and older) presented to our clinic. They will be living in a residence hall. None have a record of having received MenACWY. Should the receive a dose of MenACWY now?

Yes. One dose of MenACWY vaccine is recommended for all first-year college students who are or will be living in a residence hall if they are previously unvaccinated, have not received a dose of MenACWY since turning 16, or if their most recent dose (given after turning 16) was not given within the past 5 years.
