We are recommending vaccination against Meningitis Group B and offer it at the 17 year check up (will offer at any physical after that as well). Two shots, one month apart. This is a different meningitis vaccine from the one we give at age 11 years with a booster at age 16 years. For additional information, see: http://www.cdc.gov/meningococcal/outbreaks/.
