Rutgers University Meningococcal B Outbreak - Trumenba Recommendation


Dear Health Care Provider ,  

Two undergraduate students at Rutgers University- New Brunswick, New Jersey were diagnosed with invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis, serogroup B (MenB) in March and April 2016. Both students had meningitis and one had bacteremia. Molecular testing performed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined that the two isolates from these cases were genetically indistinguishable even though no common link was found between the two students. This suggests that this particular strain is present among the Rutgers University – New Brunswick undergraduate student population.

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) and Rutgers University have made a MenB vaccine recommendation with support from the CDC, that the following populations receive recommended vaccine series:

·         All incoming, returning and transfer undergraduate students

·         All graduate students who live in undergraduate dormitories, and

·         All graduates students, faculty, and staff who have had medical conditions that put them at increased risk for               meningococcal disease, based on the CDC’s definition

Please review the very important information provided via the links below.
