Princeton Turns to Mass Vaccinations to Stop Meningitis Outbreak

Will try to inject 6,000 students


Princeton University will start the vaccination of nearly 6,000 students to try to stop an outbreak of type B meningitis.

Seven students and one student visitor have been stricken by potentially life-threatening type B meningococcal disease since March, a strain of the disease more common overseas. None of the cases has been fatal.
