symptoms. After the disease has taken hold, a rash may appear. Left untreated, the disease can progress rapidly, often within hours of the first symptoms, and can lead to shock, death or serious complications, including hearing loss, brain damage, kidney disease or limb amputations.

Adolescents and young adults are at increased risk for meningococcal disease, and account for nearly 30 percent of all cases. The majority of meningococcal disease cases among adolescents are potentially vaccine-preventable. There is a vaccine available for use in children and adults aged 2 through 55 years.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends meningococcal vaccination for all adolescents 11 through 18 years of age, and college freshman planning to live in dormitories.
