Study Rationale

Meningococcal meningitis is a serious illness that can occur at any age. It affects the covering of the brain and spinal cord. It can also result in a blood infection. Vaccination is the best way to prevent the invasive meningococcal disease.

Your child’s participation will assist us in evaluating whether MenACYW conjugate vaccine (the study vaccine), when provided alongside the routine pediatric vaccines, can protect your child against meningococcal disease.  During the trial, your child may receive the other recommended childhood vaccinations that he or she needs without costs to you.

Your participation may contribute to the development of a vaccine with the potential to prevent meningococcal disease. The research study includes office visits for your child, with a telephone call between visits. Most of the office visits will happen at the same time as your usual “well-child” visits that all children should have for check-ups and vaccinations.
