ACIP Meningococcal B Vaccine Recommendations


On October 23, 2015 the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) published the June 24, 2015 Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation stating a MenB vaccination series may be administered to individuals between the ages of 16 through 23. 1

To view the October 23, 2015 MMWR publication,  click here .

The recommendation is as follows:

 Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that a MenB vaccine series may be administered to adolescents and young adults aged 16 through 23 years to provide short-term protection against most strains of MenB disease. The preferred age for MenB vaccination is 16 through 18 years. The recommendation is labeled as Category B meaning that individual clinical decision making is recommended.

  It is important to note that The Affordable Care Act ensures insurance coverage for all ACIP-recommended vaccinations including Category B ACIP recommendations. 

  Healthcare providers should contact their individual plan to determine specific coverage and reimbursement requirements and adoption timeframes. 2    MenB vaccines are available through the Vaccines for Children program. 3

This recommendation is in addition to the existing Category A MenB recommendation for individuals aged ≥ 10 years at increased risk for meningococcal disease, published in the June 12, 2015 edition of the MMWR   ( click here to view).
