What is meningococcal meningitis?
It is a serious bacterial infection that strikes between 1000 to 2600 Americans each year. Although rare, this disease can cause meningitis (swelling of the brain or spinal cord) or meningococcemia (blood infection).
Who is at risk for getting meningococcal meningitis?
Preteens and teens are at greater risk of getting this disease and are more likely to die compared with other age groups. Death rates from this disease are up to 5 times higher in teenagers and young adults (ages 15-24 years) compared with other age groups.
How do you get meningococcal meningitis?
This disease is spread from person to person through close contact. Everyday activities like sharing a drinking glass, eating utensils, kissing, or living in close quarters can put even healthy preteens and teens at greater risk for the disease.
What are the symptoms of meningococcal meningitis?
Meningococcal meningitis can be hard to recognize, especially in its early stages, because symptoms are similar to those of more common viral illnesses. Unlike more common illnesses, the disease can progress quickly and may cause death within 24 hrs. Symptoms may include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, confusion, vomiting, exhaustion, and/or a rash.
