Tell your doctor if you have recently received other vaccinations before you receive Menactra. You may receive some other vaccines at the same time as the meningitis vaccine, but not pertussis (whooping cough) or typhoid vaccine. Other medications that may interact with the vaccine include: blood thinners like warfarin, steroids (betamethasone, beclomethasone, budesonide, cortisone, dexamethasone, flunisolide, fluticasone, hydrocortisone, methylprednisolone, mometasone, prednisolone, prednisone or triamcinolone), medications for an autoimmune disorder (azathioprine, basiliximab, cyclosporine, etanercept, leflunomide, muromonab-CD3, mycophenolate mofetil, sirolimus, tacrolimus) or anti-rejection medications. The vaccine also may interact with radiation or chemotherapy treatments. Let your doctor know about all medications you currently take, including over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements.
