Healthy adolescents aged 15–19 years are strongly recommended to receive 2 doses of MenB vaccine
Healthy adolescents aged 15–19 years are strongly recommended to receive 2 doses of MenB vaccine.
The recommended dose schedule for MenB vaccines for adolescents is either:
- 2 doses of Bexsero with 8 weeks between doses, or
- 2 doses of Trumenba with 6 months between doses
There is no preference for either Bexsero or Trumenba for people aged ≥10 years who wish to receive a MenB vaccine.
Bexsero and Trumenba are not interchangeable. The same vaccine should be used for both vaccine doses.
