Menactra vaccine is contraindicated in persons who have had a severe allergic reaction (eg, anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of a meningococcal capsular polysaccharide-, diphtheria toxoid-, or CRM197- containing vaccine, or to any component of the vaccine.

Persons previously diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) may be at increased risk of GBS following receipt of Menactra vaccine. GBS has been reported in temporal relationship following administration of Menactra vaccine. The decision to give Menactra vaccine should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.

Syncope (fainting) can occur in association with administration of injectable vaccines, including Menactra vaccine. Procedures should be in place to prevent falling injury and manage syncopal reactions.
