Understanding Meningococcal Meningitis
The Student Health Center is continuously monitoring Meningococcal Meniningitis
occurrences in our area.
Meningococcal meningitis is a rare but potentially fatal bacterial infection. The disease is expressed as either meningococcal meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, or meningococcemia, the presence of bacteria in the blood.
While it is important not to overreact, it is also appropriate to be prepared and to receive information from trusted sources. We will continue to post updates on the USD Meningococcal Meningitis information we receive by visiting the CDC Meningococcal Meningitis Website
