Get Vaccinated - Stories of Those Affected by Meningitis 
Watch the stories of those who have died or have been affected by meningitis.

National Meningitis Association

The National Meningitis Association (NMA) is a nonprofit organization founded by parents whose children have died or live with permanent disabilities from meningococcal disease. We are dedicated to educating families, medical professionals and others about meningococcal disease and its prevention.
Meningococcal disease, sometimes called bacterial meningitis, is a potentially fatal bacterial infection that may cause death or disability within hours. 
However, it can be prevented through vaccination.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends meningococcal vaccination for all children at 11-12 with a booster at age 16.
