Yes. MenACWY and MenB vaccines can be given at the same visit or at any time before or after the other. The pentavalent MenABCWY vaccine Penbraya (Pfizer) may be administered as an option for people age 10 or older who need both MenB-FHbp (Trumenba, Pfizer) and MenACWY vaccination at the same visit. For people age 10 years or older at increased risk of meningococcal disease, Penbraya may be used for additional MenACWY and MenB doses (including booster doses) if both would be given on the same clinic day and at least 6 months have elapsed since most recent Penbraya dose.
