Study: Meningitis B vaccine immunity lower than expected

AAP SmartBrief | Jul 21, 2016

Thirty-four percent of nearly 500 Princeton University students who received two doses of Bexsero meningitis B vaccine during the 2013 to 2014 on-campus outbreak showed no evidence of antibodies to the disease, but none developed a meningitis infection. The findings in the New England Journal of Medicine are unlikely to change the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices guidelines, which don't recommend meningitis B vaccine for all teens, said ACIP Chair Dr. Nancy Bennett.
