#ICYMI: NMA President Leslie Maier and advocate Jonathan DeGuzman joined a LIVE virtual chat hosted by the @33rdPTA in Los Angeles alongside award-winning actress @IamMollyRingwald and Dr. Oliver Brooks, in collaboration with Sanofi.
We discussed how we can help protect teens against meningococcal #meningitis, a disease they’re at increased risk for. For the best protection, the CDC recommends a first dose of the MenACWY vaccine at 11-12 years and a second dose at 16 years.
Talk to your teen’s doctor about the CDC-recommended second dose of the MenACWY vaccine, and also ask about the MenB vaccine and other adolescent vaccines. Check out The16Vaccine.org to learn more. #The16Vaccine
