Meningococcal B Vaccine Group

Two Shot Same Day Exception Rules for Meningococcal B

If CVX 162 (Meningococcal B FHbp, recombinant (Trumenba)) and CVX 163 (Meningococcal B 4C, OMV (Bexsero)) are reported as administered on the same day, then:

  • evaluate CVX 162 (Meningococcal B FHbp, recombinant (Trumenba)) as Invalid with a reason code of DUPLICATE_SAME_DAY
  • evaluate CVX 163 (Meningococcal B 4C, OMV (Bexsero)) as Valid
  • recommend based on the MenB 4C 2-dose Series.  

However, if both Meningococcal B vaccines are administered on the same day, and one vaccine would complete a Meningococcal B series, then evaluate that vaccine as Valid and the other Meningococcal B vaccine as Invalid with a reason code of DUPLICATE_SAME_DAY.  (Example - CVX 162 (Trumenba) administered at 16 years old.  CVX 162 (Trumenba) and CVX 163 (Bexsero) administered on same day (at 16 years, 6 months old). Trumenba 2-dose series applies/Series Complete. CVX 163 would be evaluated as Invalid/DUPLICATE_SAME_DAY.)
