Be sure to notify your doctor of any side effects that occur after you receive this vaccine.
This vaccine may cause a serious type of allergic reaction called anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. Tell your doctor right away if you have a rash, itching, swelling of the tongue and throat, or troubled breathing after you get the injection.
Syncope (fainting) may occur after receiving this vaccine. Your doctor may want you to be observed after you get the injection to prevent and manage fainting.
MenQuadfi™ may not protect everyone who receives it. This vaccine will not prevent tetanus, and will not treat symptoms of meningococcal infection if you already have the disease.
Tell your doctor if you are using a medicine or treatment that weakens your immune system (eg, eculizumab). This vaccine may not work as well if you are also using these medicines.
It is important that your doctor should know about all other vaccines you or your child have recently received.
