Verify Correct Use of Meningococcal Vaccines Post-Splenectomy

You may be getting questions about meningococcal vaccines for post-splenectomy patients.

Expect your hospital to carry one quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Menactra, Menveo, or MenQuadfi) to cover serogroups A, C, W, and either Bexsero or Trumenba to cover serogroup B.

Products within each type are considered equally effective and safe...and costs are similar.
