Meningitis Deaths Renew Debate About Vaccinating Students.
Reisberg, Leo
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n44 pA41-A42 Jul 9 1999
The annual incidence of meningococcal disease among 15- to 25-year olds has doubled since 1991, to over 600 cases, and recent studies indicate outbreaks may be increasing on college campuses. Six of the 83 cases appearing at academic institutions have been fatal. The trend has fueled the debate over whether a vaccine should be administered routinely to students. (MSE)
