In brief: Risk for meningitis

Meningococcal meningitis is an infections disease, spread by close contact with infected individuals or carriers of meningococcus.
The risk is high in populations such as college student, camps and schools, especially boarding schools. Known contacts of infected individuals should consult their doctor about the need for prophylactic treatment.
