Thanks for your query. At the outset let me inform you that "no vaccine is 100% and no vaccine is 100% effective". Secondly the meningitis may be due to other causes too. It is only a lumbar puncture which is going to confirm the organism whereafter we can come to know if the organism was covered by the pentavalent vaccine or not.
