There are several vaccines against meningococcus:
- meningococcal group C vaccine
- meningococcal groups A, C, W135 and Y vaccine
- meningococcal group B vaccine
In Belgium, infants have been systematically vaccinated against meningococcal serogroup C since 2002.
Quadrivalent vaccines (against serogroups A, C, W and Y meningococci) and meningococcal serogroup B vaccine are also available in Belgium. They are not currently included in the Belgian vaccination calendar nor reimbursed (January 2018).
