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.
