Answer

Regarding specific recommendations for individuals with certain risk factors for meningococcal infection, the ACIP stated that HIV-infected individuals aged 11-18 years should be given a primary series of 2 doses, 2 months apart. This should be followed by a booster dose administered at age 16 years (if the primary dose was at age 11 or 12) or at age 16-18 years (if the primary dose was at age 13-15 years). No booster is needed if the primary dose was given at age 16 years or later. [47]
