  • Meningococcal ACWY
  • For People with Risk Factors

Which people age 2 years and older are recommended to receive a 2-dose primary series of MenACWY?

For people who are age 2 years or older, a 2-dose series of MenACWY, spaced 8–12 weeks apart, is recommended if they have functional or anatomic asplenia, HIV infection, persistent complement component deficiency (an immune disorder including C3, C5–C9, properdin, factor H, and factor D deficiency), or if they take a complement inhibitor (eculizumab [Soliris] or ravulizumab [Ultomiris]). People with these high-risk medical conditions also need booster doses of MenACWY.
