they also warned that if you are exhibiting symptoms of said scary infection, to head to the doc asap, which is an obvious form of advice, although i have a feeling some dimwit might not think to go to the doctor if they feel ill.
so............if you're experiencing fever, chills, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, vomiting, rash, and lethargy, best get your ass to the doctor! even if you think it's the flu......be smart. seriously.
this stuff is dan-ger-ous. and very deadly.
i remember a few years back that there was a huge rash of meningitis infections (which resulted in many deaths) running rampant around the us, and that there was even talk, for a time, of making the vaccine required for all college students or incoming freshman or something of that nature. it was a while ago, so i can't remember it very clearly. suffice it to say, this stuff is dangerous. and scareh.
