Meningococcal Vaccine Recommended in Some 2-Month-Old Infants

April 1, 2014

Are you up-to-date on revisions to the American Academy of Pediatrics 2014 vaccine schedule?

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released its recommended 2014 vaccine schedule. No major changes were made, but it was modified a little.

One revision involves a new recommendation for the use of meningococcal vaccine in 2-month-old infants with specific indications. It is not yet recommended for routine use in all 2-month-old babies.

Which meningococcal vaccine can now be given to infants as young as age 2 months, if indicated?
