PENBRAYATM is the only FDA-approved vaccine that helps protect your teen from all 5 leading types of meningococcal meningitis (also known as meningitis)
You may remember your teen getting the first vaccine for MenACWY at age 11 to 12,* but to fully vaccinate them against all 5 of the most common types of meningitis, your teen still needs 3 additional doses starting at age 16 to cover both MenACWY and MenB.
By vaccinating your teen with PENBRAYA at age 16, they can complete their MenACWY vaccination and begin their MenB vaccination, but with 1 less required dose.
*If your teen did not receive an initial dose of MenACWY vaccine before the age of 16, these 2 doses of PENBRAYA 6 months apart will start and complete both MenACWY and MenB immunization schedules.
The safety profile of PENBRAYA was assessed in 3 clinical trials that included individuals aged 10 to 25 years old. The most common side effects were pain at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, injection site redness, injection site swelling, joint pain, and chills.
Talk with your teen’s doctor about whether PENBRAYA is right for them.
PENBRAYA may be available at no cost to you
Vaccines for your teen, like PENBRAYA, are considered a preventive care service and may be available at no charge.
Affordable Care Act (ACA)
The Affordable Care Act (ACA)† requires new health insurance plans to cover preventive care services. Patients who visit a doctor who is a part of their health plan will not pay a deductible, copayment, or coinsurance cost.
Vaccines for Children (VFC)
If you do not have insurance or are enrolled in Medicaid, the Vaccines for Children (VFC)† program may be able to help. The VFC program is a program paid for by the government that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because they are not able to pay. The vaccines are given for free. But there might be other costs, such as payment for the visit or other services.
