Meningococcal meningitis is a rare yet serious infection that causes swelling of the brain or spinal cord. It is spread from person to person through close contact (sharing drinking glasses, eating utensils, kissing, or living in close quarters). Parents/guardians need to be aware that a vaccine is available to help protect preteens and teens from this potentially devastating disease. Also, effective July 1, 2015, one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) will be required for individuals entering the 7th grade in NC or by 12 years of age, whichever comes first. Please view the Voices of Meningitis website for more information or contact your school nurse
