• Meningococcal ACWY
  • Vaccine Recommendations

We run immunization clinics at the local jail, which has a living arrangement comparable to a college residential hall. In this setting, would you recommend vaccinating incarcerated individuals against meningococcal ACWY disease as is recommended for people living in a college dormitory?

ACIP does not identify incarceration as an indication for meningococcal ACWY vaccination. Providers are always free to use their clinical judgment in situations not addressed by ACIP.
