Menveo and Breastfeeding

Most vaccines, including Menveo (meningococcal vaccine), are considered safe for women who are nursing. Even though women who are breastfeeding can receive Menveo, routine use of meningococcal vaccines is not recommended in most healthy adults. However, everyone's situation is different; by talking with your healthcare provider, you can make a decision that is right for you.

Can Breastfeeding Women Receive Menveo?

Menveo® (meningococcal vaccine) is a vaccine approved to prevent bacterial meningitis and other forms of invasive meningococcal diseases. In general, most vaccines (including Menveo) are considered safe to receive while breastfeeding.
 
It should be noted that although this vaccine is approved for use in adults (up to age 55), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) does not recommend routine use of meningococcal vaccines in most healthy adults, except in certain circumstances (see Menveo Uses for more information about who should receive this product).
 
At this time, most sources agree that breastfeeding women can safely receive most vaccines, including Menveo.
 

Talking With Your Healthcare Provider

You should discuss breastfeeding and Menveo with your healthcare provider. Each woman's situation is different, and you and your healthcare provider understand your situation best. After considering what you want and expect, as well as your current health situation, the two of you can make a shared decision that is right for you.
