Meningococcal Vaccine Information Tent
To increase awareness of the Meningitis B vaccine, AANP developed a colorful seven-inch by five-inch trifold informational tent with a concise review of meningococcal disease, signs/symptoms and prevention through MenACWY and MenB vaccines. This tent can be printed, folded, taped and placed in the waiting room or exam rooms where patients and parents of adolescents will read it to initiate questions and conversations about meningococcal disease prevention with their health care provider.
