Meningitis

Get Vaccinated

Meningococcal disease is potentially life threatening.  It develops very rapidly and can be fatal to a previously healthy person in a matter of hours.

  • Young adults are at increased risk. College students are at high risk because of risky behaviors and living in close quarters like residence halls or Greek housing.
  • Currently, Meningococcal vaccination is given at 11 & 16 years of age, but many young adults have missed it the second dose.
  • Public colleges and universities in Idaho do not require immunizations to enter school.
  • Many college students are unprotected.
