Meningococcal vaccine for adolescents studying in the USA
The US Embassy in Norway has been in contact with several American universities concerning the matter, and the vast majority will now approve vaccination with Nimenrix.
To make it easier for Norwegian adolescents to get their Nimenrix vaccination approved in the USA, please refer to the attached memo from the American authorities about the use of the vaccine. It concerns American children who are vaccinated with Nimenrix in Europe, and states that they do not need further vaccination with Menveo:
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health recommends that young people aged 16 - 19 years should consider taking the meningococcal ACWY vaccine. Protection lasts for several years. Both Menveo and Nimenrix are available in Norway.
