Abstract

Meningococcal invasive disease, including meningitis, is a serious and potentially lethal infection. Meningococcal disease has caused numerous epidemics in the past, but currently in the U.S., outbreaks are sporadic and rare. Children less than 2 years of age are most often affected, however almost one half of cases occur in persons over 15 years old.
