Depends on age..: For adolescents who receive the first dose at age 13-15 years, a one-time booster dose should be administered, preferably at age 16 through 18 years. Adolescents who receive their first dose of mcv4 at or after age 16 years do not need a booster dose. Certain high risk adults should be vaccinated and receive a booster, see: http://www.Cdc.Gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/mening/who-vaccinate-hcp.Htm.
