Do you have a child who will be turning 11 years old? Does your child still need his/her 11 year old vaccines?
One of the routine vaccines that kids receive at age 11 is a vaccine to prevent meningitis. Right now, kids require 4 shots (one shot at age 11, two shots at 16, and one shot at 16.5) in order to gain adequate immunity against the bacteria that causes meningitis.
About the Vaccine
GlaxoSmithKlein (GSK) is developing a combination vaccine that would reduce the number of shots and would allow for better coverage for meningococcal disease around the world. This investigational vaccine combines 2 established GSK vaccines that are already used at pediatricians' offices to protect against meningitis.
If your child (age 11-14) qualifies for this research trial, he/she will receive:
- Medical evaluations
- Financial compensation for their time
- The investigational vaccine at no cost
