MENINGITIS B

Children’s Medical Group is now recommending that our patients, age 16-23, get vaccinated against meningococcal group B disease. also known as meningitis B. We are recommending the vaccine for those entering college and those already enrolled.

Until 2014, there were no vaccines to help protect against meningitis B in the US. In 2015, outbreaks of meningitis B occurred on several college campuses. Trumenba, a 2 dose vaccine, administered 6 months apart, can help protect your child from this uncommon, but potentially deadly disease. Even though your child may have received a meningitis vaccine (Menactra) already, the previous vaccine did not protect against meningitis B. Both vaccines are necessary for thorough coverage.

Call our office, 203-661-2440, to schedule your child’s appointment.
