  • Meningococcal ACWY
  • For People with Risk Factors

Should I recommend MenACWY vaccine for a nonsmoker living in a crowded household of smokers?

Although second-hand smoke and other environmental conditions have been identified as risk factors for meningococcal disease, ACIP does not include them as indications for MenACWY vaccination. Providers may always use their clinical judgment in situations not addressed by ACIP.
