TRUMENBA®Warnings and Precautions (Meningococcal Group B Vaccine)

5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

5.1 Management of Allergic Reactions

Epinephrine and other appropriate agents used to manage immediate allergic reactions must be immediately available should an acute anaphylactic reaction occur following administration of Trumenba.

5.2 Altered Immunocompetence

Reduced Immune Response

Some individuals with altered immunocompetence may have reduced immune responses to Trumenba.

Complement Deficiency

Persons with certain complement deficiencies and persons receiving treatment that inhibits terminal complement activation (for example, eculizumab) are at increased risk for invasive disease caused by N. meningitidis serogroup B even if they develop antibodies following vaccination with Trumenba [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.0)].

5.3 Limitation of Vaccine Effectiveness

As with any vaccine, vaccination with Trumenba may not protect all vaccine recipients against N. meningitidis serogroup B infections.

5.4 Syncope

Syncope (fainting) can occur in association with administration of injectable vaccines, including Trumenba. Procedures should be in place to avoid injury from fainting.
