When and How to Take Menveo

Some general considerations to keep in mind with this vaccine include the following:
 
  • Menveo is typically given as one to four doses, depending on age.
     
  • This vaccine is injected into a muscle (intramuscularly), usually in the upper arm (or the thigh, for babies).
     
  • People can be vaccinated if they have a minor illness, such as the common cold. However, the vaccine should be postponed if the individual is moderately or severely ill.
     

Dosing Information

The dosing schedule for this vaccine varies, depending on age (see Menveo Dosage for more information).
 

Side Effects of Menveo

Just like any vaccine, Menveo may cause side effects. However, not everyone who receives the vaccine will experience problems. In fact, most children tolerate it well, with only minor reactions, if any. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they require no treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common.
 
Some of the most common side effects seen with Menveo include but are not limited to:
 
  • Injection site reactions, such as pain, redness, or swelling
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea.
