In brief: Meningitis

If you are exposed to someone with Meningococcal meningitis, you are at risk for developing Meningococcal infection.
Contact you doctor as there are antibiotics you can have prescribed that should protect you from developing the infection.

In brief: Very little

Usually very little in the general population.
Higher risks groups are military recruits in barracks and college students in dorms.
