As of 2015, the average cost of a meningococcal meningitis vaccine for a person not covered by health insurance is between $100 and $150. The average cost of this vaccine at local CVS Pharmacy's Minute Clinic locations is $112.
The cost of a meningococcal meningitis vaccine for a person who is covered by health insurance depends on the co-pay of the health insurance plan, and most health insurance plans cover the meningitis vaccine. Doctors recommend the vaccine to people 18 years of age and younger, HIV patients and those who travel to certain areas of the world. However, the vaccine does not protect individuals from all meningococcal diseases.
