Hi..., Children at higher risk for meningococcal disease (children with no spleen or who have certain medical conditions) must and should receive meningococcal vaccine..... Meningococcal vaccines are very safe and effective..... Japanese encephalitis vaccine is approved for people 2 months of age and older....And it is 90% effective in preventing Japanese encephalitis...
