So sorry about the sad news... Condolences.

Parents, don't let your kids go off to college before first getting them a meningitis vaccination.

Very sad and meningitis vaccinations are a wise idea.

There is no meningitis vaccination the viral and other forms of meningitis-but they are less fatal

Our condolences to her family
