Help Protect Your Preteen and Teen Against Meningococcal Disease

Make sure your preteen and teen get the meningococcal conjugate vaccine for protection against meningococcal disease, a very serious illness where death can occur in as little as a few hours. The meningococcal conjugate vaccine is recommended at 11–12 years of age and a booster dose at age 16.
