Effective March 1, 2024, Manitoba Health updated its recommended meningococcal vaccine for infants
12 months of age from the Men C-C vaccine to a Men-C-ACYW vaccine to protect against the
meningococcal bacteria types A, C, Y and W.

In addition there is a catch-up campaign for children born between January 1, 2020 and February 28,
2023. If your child was born within this time frame and received a dose of a Men-C-C vaccine, it is
recommended that they be offered a dose of the Men-C-ACYW vaccine as long as there has been a 4
week interval in these doses.

Western Medical Clinic will be holding a clinic to provide these booster doses on Tuesday, June 18, 2024
from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
If you would like to book your child for a booster dose with us please call
204-727-6451 x2201 and leave a message and we will call you back to confirm your booking!

If June 18 2024 between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm do not work for you, please contact your nearest Public
Health office to book an appointment.
