Updated Recommendations for Use of MenB-FHbp Serogroup B Meningococcal Vaccine — Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, 2016
If vaccinating with MenB-FHbp – including during serogroup B meningococcal disease outbreaks – ACIP recommends that three doses of MenB-FHbp be administered at 0, 1–2, and 6 months for people at increased risk of meningococcal disease. ACIP recommends that two doses of MenB-FHbp should be administered at 0 and 6 months when given to healthy adolescents who are not at increased risk for meningococcal disease. Recommendations regarding use of MenB-4C vaccine (Bexsero) are unchanged. Either MenB vaccine can be used when indicated; however, they are not interchangeable and the same product must be used for all doses in a series. Two serogroup B meningococcal (MenB) vaccines are currently licensed for use among people aged 10–25 years in the United States: MenB-FHbp (trade name, Trumenba) and MenB-4C (trade name, Bexsero). Changes to the dosage and administration of MenB-FHbp vaccines were recently approved by FDA to include both a three-dose series (administered at 0, 1–2, and 6 months) and a two-dose series (administered at 0 and 6 months). For people at increased risk for meningococcal disease and for use during serogroup B meningococcal disease outbreaks, ACIP recommends that three doses of MenB-FHbp be administered at 0, 1–2, and 6 months. When given to healthy adolescents who are not at increased risk for meningococcal disease, ACIP recommends that 2 doses of MenB-FHbp should be administered at 0 and 6 months.
