I hear all this stuff about meningitis and that teens need to be vaccinated - does anybody know about where to get help?
My oldest had a vaccine for it before he started college. You should be able to get more information from your pediatrician or family doctor or county/city health department.
I was required to be vaccinated before starting college. Check with your doctor.
my nephew got the vaccine but it didn't cover the strain that almost killed him at 19yrs old...the vaccine doesn't cover the strain that kills 1 out of 2 people, and thats the kind my nephew had. And theres' also the viral meningitis for which there is no vaccine.
I can tell you in the past 2 seasons I personally took care of 3 students who all died of meningitis and all of them were vaccinated (all 3 were vaccinated in february and died the same year in October) it is my humble oppinion that all this vaccinating (combind with anti microbial everything) we do leaves our immune system unable to handle infections that (should one that is strong) are in our enviornment -- and the microbes are getting stronger while our immune systems are getting weaker
