Meningitis – What’s Covered / What’s Not

Do you have school aged children? There are five sero-groups of the meningococcal bacteria that cause illness in North America, but we only vaccinate for one of the five groups as part of the routine vaccination schedules. The routine schedule only covers group C, but there is a vaccine for group A/C/Y/W-135 and now a vaccine for group B as well.
