Epidemic meningitis is caused by several bacteria, and there is no effective vaccination against all of them.
Epidemic meningitis is caused by several bacteria, and there is no effective vaccination against all of them. One part of the available vaccinations is a combined immunization effective against 4 types of bacteria (A, C, W135, Y). At the moment there is no effective vaccination available against the B type bacterium in the world.
Two types of the vaccines are known such as polysaccharide and conjugate one.
One type of them (polysaccharide) can only be used above the age of 2. The vaccination takes effect within 10-14 days after receiving it.An at least 3 year-long protection can be achieved in case of children of school age, or young people older than them as well as in case of adults. Nevertheless, in case of children younger than 4 the effectiveness of the antibodies decreases rapidly (2-3 years).
Conjugate vaccinations are more effective than the polysaccharide ones. Therefore, their effectiveness is for a longer period of time.Moreover, the antigen induces antibody response also in case of children younger than 2 years of age, this way conjugate vaccinations can be given to them as well, except for the Menveo vaccine.
