One Family's Crusade To Inform the Public about Meningococcal Meningitis.
Skowronek, Linda and Carl
Our Children, v27 n2 p8 Oct 2001
Describes meningococcal meningitis, which strikes over 100 college students yearly. Living in dormitories puts students at risk for contracting the disease. The current vaccine protects against the four main types of the infection, though it is not perfect protection. Some states have adopted legislation requiring all incoming college freshmen and parents to be aware of the disease and the vaccine. (SM)
