The new meningitis W vaccination campaign will target teenagers

Great news (even if not really fresh, as it was already in the news in March).
So many young men and women die from it. so far not enough batches to vaccinate all children so it is targeted at the main victims, young adults, especially those going to uni. Not because uni is dangerous but because these young people are away from home and from whom would notice they are unwell.
So yes fantastic news. Meningitis is a killer, a truly fast killer, it strikes and you are down in two days.
