Where can I go to get a Meningitis vaccine?
I’m going to college, and had planned on commuting since dorms were not available. Something happened, and now all of a sudden I can get one when I wasn’t planning on it. Long story short, I need to get a meningitis shot in the next week. Where can I find one? I called the local walk-in clinic, they don’t have it, neither does my doctor.
Try the Center for Disease Control, travel agents, or hospitals that have immunizations for international travel. If you want to call another doctor, try one who specializes in infectious diseases. One last thought—can your school make any recommendations about resources?
How often do you need to receive the meningitis vaccine?
I received the meningitis vaccination 4 years ago so I was wondering when I would need to receive it again. I work at a hospital so I would say that I’m in a high-risk group. Thanks.
According to the CDC website:
• One dose of the meningitis vaccine is needed.
• If previous vaccine was MPSV4, revaccinate after 5yrs if risk continues.
•Revaccination after MCV4 is not recommended.
•MCV4 is preferred over MPSV4 for persons age 55yrs and younger, although MPSV4 is an acceptable alternative.
So, it would depend on what meningitis vaccine you received four years ago.
What kind of meningitis causes you to break out into spots that look like bruises?
My sister died in my arms when i was 6 (she was only 2). She died of meningitis but i wasnt for sure which one? i would really like to know, so i can get into deeper research.
The first answerer obviously got confused. However his remarks track for pimples, generally speaking, allowing for allergic reactions to cause problems with ordinarily harmless foods like chocolate. Your sister had diagnosed meningitis, and bruise-like spots showed up. This sounds like Meningo Toxemia (if I remember how to spell it!), which can cause loss of limbs, or in your sister’s case, more than that. Exactly why certain people get it and others don’t, remains a mystery. Good luck with your research. Regards, Larry.
How long does it take to get over viral meningitis?
My daughter, aged 20 is still feeling ill one week after being diagnosed with viral meningitis. She is nauseous and wants to know if it is normal and how long it takes to go away. She is not eating, feels completely helpless and just wants to sleep all the time. Has anyone been through this and what advice can you give. All advice will be appreciated. Thank you.
Viral Meningitis can take month’s to recover from, as sufferer’s can develop a post-viral syndrome that causes severe fatigue, and associated symptoms such as headaches. It is a syndrome like chronic fatigue. The general period of disease of viral meningitis can typically last up to one week, with symptoms gradually lessening. If you believe recovery is not moving fast enough, I would check in with your doctor.
How long does the meningitis vaccination last?
I got my meningitis vaccination in 2002. Now I’m a fifth year student living in college and the health services here don’t event know when how long the vaccination lasts….which sucks badly.
It never had any valid effect.
Do not get vaccinated. There is no scientific proof that the theory of vaccination is valid, yet there is considerable proof that Vaccines cause illness and death.
Just sit back and think about it for a while. Does it feel like sense to inject a disease directly into your bloodstream?
The way to avoid disease is to strengthen the immune system. Vaccination weakens it.

How much does the Meningitis shot hurt?
I have to take the Meningitis shot and i’m completely freaked out about it. Shots and needles absolutely terrify me so if anybody has any first hand experience or tips, I would really appreciate it.
Shots are tough that’s for sure, but everybody is different. A tip is to just look away and think that it will all be over soon. You’ll be just fine, even if it hurts you know you won’t die. Good luck
How does one disinfect after someone has been diagnosed for Meningitis?
Someone at my mother’s work has contracted Meningitis (don’t know yet if bacterial, viral, or parasitic, but can assume not the last) and obviously people are concerned. How is it spread and how contagious is it? And if it is bacterial, how do they disinfect the office (and people) because my mother is afraid of being an asymptomatic carrier, and infecting my grandparents or myself…
I realize the bacterial variety is contagious, but how much so?
It is contagious.
