Meningococcal Pediatric Vaccine

Meningococcal Pediatric Vaccine

Anyone can get meningococcal disease but infants and adolescents are at increased risk.  The vaccine tested in this study is designed to protect against 4 different types of the disease. 

The symptoms of meningococcal disease are similar to other diseases, with fever, aches, chills, and headache.  Young children may be irritable or sleepy, refuse to eat or have fever with cold hands and feet.  Meningococcal disease can quickly become very serious.  The disease is treated with antibiotics.  However, even with proper treatment about 1 out of 100 people with the disease die. Some people survive but may suffer hearing loss, brain and kidney damage, or may lose fingers or limbs.

This is why preventing the disease is important.  Vaccination with the meningococcal vaccine is the best way to protect people against the  disease.
