The teen years fly by. Parents may not be able to help stop the clock on their pre-teens or teens from growing up or experiencing some of the age-related hardships like heartbreak or acne breakouts. However, they can help protect their kids from potentially deadly and vaccine-preventable diseases such as meningococcal meningitis. That’s why actress, mother and campaign ambassador Tiffani Thiessen is joining our mission, along with Emmy-winning journalist, activist and mother Catt Sadler, to encourage parents to speak with their child and their child’s healthcare professional about the importance of the MenACWY vaccine to help ensure they have protection when it matters.
TEAMING UP WITH TIFFANI
Hear from Tiffani and other special guests who are coming together to help stop the clock on meningococcal disease and help spread the word about the importance of MenACWY vaccination.
KNOW THE FACTS
Meningococcal meningitis can strike quickly…and can take a life in as little as one day
Meningococcal meningitis is a contagious disease spread through saliva and respiratory droplets
The CDC recommends a 1st dose of MenACWY vaccination at 11-12 years and a 2nd dose at 16 years, when teens are at increased risk
~50% of U.S. teens do not receive the crucial second dose
- Parents, please talk to your child’s healthcare professional today about MenACWY vaccination, as well as MenB and other important adolescent vaccines.
“I wish I could go back and get the shot and reverse time and do it all over again.”
