In brief: No it is one shot
It is a single shot but you may need booster to keep immunity

In brief: No
The recommendations are complicated, but none recommend a three dose series.
Some children and adults need two doses as part of their primary vaccination series, others need just one. If an individual remains at risk for exposure to meningococcus, then a booster every 5 years is recommended.
