World Meningitis Day


Your child suddenly appears to have flu like symptoms and you take them to the doctor to find that it is not the flu but meningitis. This is one of the infectious diseases that grip parents with intense fear. For this reason it is important to ensure that all are not only aware of meningitis prevention and vaccinations but also support lines if the worst happens. 




Meningitis is a potentially deadly inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. It may the result of infection by bacteria or viruses. Bacterial meningitis is the most severe type and often results in medical emergency. Meningitis can strike quick, be hard to diagnose and can lead to death in matter of hours.  In the case that death does not occur the victim of meningitis may have their life changed otherwise through deafness, epilepsy, brain damage, or the loss of a limb. Meningitis has no age limit but the youngest among us are at particularly at risk




The best way to guard against this terrible disease is thru vaccinations. To find out more about Meningitis and the annual Meningitis Day visit https://www.meningitisnow.org/support-us/news-centre/public-affairs/campaigns/world-meningitis-day/
