The 16 Vaccine campaign from the National Meningitis Association highlights the importance of the second dose of MenACWY at the 16-year-old checkup

The 16 Vaccine is a national campaign to highlight the importance of the second dose of the MenACWY vaccine at the 16-year-old checkup. Launched by the National Meningitis Association (NMA), in collaboration with Sanofi Pasteur, the campaign includes a website, social media posts, and a series of videos presenting NMA advocates discussing how meningitis affected their lives.

Many parents are aware of the first dose of MenACWY at ages 11-12, but they don’t know the CDC recommends a second dose at age 16. The campaign encourages parents to talk to their teen’s doctor about the second dose of MenACWY, along with other important vaccinations given at the 16-year-old visit.
