How can you get meningococcal disease?

Dr. Janet Greenhut
Preventive Medicine 43 years experience
Person to person: Meningococcal disease is spread from one person to another by throat or respiratory secretions (eg, coughing, kissing, or sharing eating utensils). The bacteria can't live outside the body for more than a few minutes, so they don't get spread by being left on objects such as door handles or faucets.
