FDA Approves GSK’s Single Vial Meningitis Vaccine
The FDA has approved GSK’s Menveo single vial vaccine for individuals 10 to 55 years old to prevent invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis serogroups A, C, Y and W.
The original form of the vaccine approved in 2010 is in two vials that require reconstitution. That form is still available for individuals from two months to 55 years old.
The Menveo single vial version will be rolled out first to federal customers with broader availability expected in mid-2023, the company said.
