• Meningococcal ACWY
  • Contraindications & Precautions

What are the contraindications and precautions for MenACWY?

As with all vaccines, a severe allergic reaction (for example, anaphylaxis) to a vaccine component or to a prior dose is a contraindication to further doses of that vaccine. A moderate or severe acute illness is a precaution; vaccination should be deferred until the person’s condition has improved. Because MenACWY is an inactivated vaccine, it can be administered to people who are immunosuppressed as a result of disease or medications; however, response to the vaccine might be less than optimal.
