Morning Rounds: Meningitis Vaccines

The Morning Show

Dr. Nathan Walker from Christie Clinic joins the Morning Show and in this week’s Morning Rounds he is discussing meningitis vaccines before school starts.

Young adults need vaccines too.  They may be especially important if you’re living in close quarters with others, like college dorms and sharing bedrooms, bathrooms, and food. This can make you more likely to come into contact with dangerous germs.  Before you send your child to college this fall, speak to your provider about a meningitis vaccine.

Who should be vaccinated?
How prevalent is meningitis?
Is meningitis fatal?
Are there any risks/side effects to consider before vaccinating?
