Vaccination of persons at risk of meningococcal infection
Vaccination against meningococcal ACWY has been part of the basic vaccination schedule for children and adolescents since 2019.
For certain risk groups, the SHC recommends the meningococcal group B vaccine, with booster doses for both vaccines depending on the group.
This new advice provides an overview of the vaccination schedules and a definition of the risk groups, namely:
- persons at medical risk (see p. 4),
- travellers to endemic areas or pilgrims of the Hadj/Umrah, and
- laboratory staff in contact with invasive meningococci (new).
