shortage of Menactra (meningococcal vaccine)

Heavy demand is causing a shortage of Menactra (meningococcal vaccine). It'll last through this summer and fall...a peak time for back-to-school immunizations.

Menactra is usually given to kids age 11 to 12...adolescents entering high school...or college freshmen.

During the shortage, CDC recommends deferring vaccination for 11 to 12 year-olds. But continue vaccinating teens entering high school and college freshmen who will live in dorms.
