Good afternoon doctor
Good evening, thanks for the question

This vaccine is only given to prospective pilgrims or Umrah or travelers to certain countries in accordance with applicable regulations. This vaccine may also be given to pregnant and lactating women.
HIV positive individuals with CD4 values less or more than 200 cells / uL can be given this meningitis vaccine. This vaccine is given 1 dose and is given only in conditions with the risk of one of them traveling on Hajj or Hajj.
That's all, hope you can help
