In brief: Almost No-one

The only contraindications are if you have had an allergic reaction to the Meningococcal vaccine previously or if you are moderately to severely ill.

In brief: Only allergic

It is a killed/protein vaccine, so it cannot cause the condition, so basically unless allergic to the vaccine or eggs (usually produced utilizing egg proteins), then should get it.
Your dr can provide specific counsel.
