who should get meningitis and shingles vaccines

New developments will raise questions about who should get meningitis and shingles vaccines.

Meningitis. Texas will REQUIRE meningococcal vaccination for ALL entering college students. First state to do so. Many other states just RECOMMEND it...or require it only for dorm dwellers.

Recommend giving meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Menactra, Menveo) to kids at age 11 or 12...then a booster at age 16 to protect them through their early adult years.
