That's why visiting nurse services is offering clinics that provide vaccinations against the disease. Anyone between the ages of eleven and fifty-five can get the vaccination, but immunizations project manager Judy Moon says the clinics are targeting high school seniors.
Meningitis is a potentially deadly disease that is often mistaken for the flu. Many area schools are also hosting clinics. A complete list can be found at www.vnsi.org
