    Meningitis Information

    Meningococcal disease can refer to any illness that is caused by the type of bacteria called Neisseria meningitides, also knows as meningoccus.  These illnesses are often severe and include infections of the lining of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and bloodstream infections (bacteremia or septicemia).

    Menningococcus bacteria are spread through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions like spit (e.g. by living in close quarters, kissing).  Meningococcal disease can be treated with antibiotics, but quick medical attention is extremely important.  Keeping up to date with recommended vaccines is the best defense against meningococcal disease.

    It is required by Indiana law that incoming college students receive information regarding Meningitis.  This information is provided to you in the above paragraphs.
