Vaccinations for teenagers - Meningococcal ACWY booster age 17
Meningococcal ACWY (Menactra/Menveo) is given to Ontario teenagers at no cost in grade 7 . Invasive Meningococcal Disease (IMD) is an important cause of sudden onset bacterial blood infections (Septicemia) leading to Meningitis , disability and death. IMD mortality is approximately 10%. Of IMD survivors 10-20% have long term sequelae including hearing loss, neurologic disabilities and digit or limb amputations Teenagers and young adults are high risk age groups for this bacterial infection.
The Centre for Disease control recommends a dose of Menactra/Menveo to be given in Grade 7 and a booster dose in Grade 12 to boost immunity post secondary school . We agree and recommend a second dose of Menactra/Menveo as a booster in Grade 12. It is not covered by OHIP and is available for a fee at our office.
Please call our office and book an appointment to recieve a Meningococcal ACWY (Menactra/Menveo) booster.
