Is it fine if a 2year old child receives the vaccine intended at the age of 12 ?

MY 2 year old was given the wrong shot at his Pediatrician s office this morning. Was supposed to get Hep A and got a Meningitis vaccine intended for a 12 year old is there anything to be alarmed about. I know it was approved couple of years ago for younger kids but wondering should I worry?
