Meningococcal disease is a rare, but potentially life-threatening bacterial infection. It can potentially kill an otherwise healthy young person within 1 day after the first symptoms appear. Rising 7th graders are now required to receive the meningococcal vaccine that can help prevent this disease. Read more about this requirement here: http://www.immunize.nc.gov/schools/6thgrade.htm
