Meningococcal Vaccine Toolkit

IKC is working to improve vaccination rates in the state of Kansas, paying special attention to adolescent vaccines - HPV and meningococcal vaccination rates. There are two types of meningococcal vaccines licensed in the United States: Meningococcal conjugate vaccines (MenACWY) and Serogroup B meningococcal vaccine (MenB). These vaccines help prevent the most common causes of meningococcal disease in the U.S.

Currently, Kansas has one of the lowest conjugate meningococcal vaccination rates in the country. IKC's goal with this toolkit was originally to increase MenACWY vaccination rates to meet the Healthy People 2020 goal of 80%. The goal now is to maintain MenACWY vaccination rates at or above 80% through the year 2021.
