Answer

Vaccination with quadrivalent meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine should be offered to all high-risk populations, including those who have underlying immune deficiencies, those who travel to hyperendemic areas and epidemic areas, and those who do laboratory work that involves routine exposure to N meningitidis. College students who live in dormitories or residence halls are at modest risk; they should be informed about the risk and offered vaccination.
