The Meningitis B Action Project is a fantastic initiative by two dedicated CoMO members. Raising awareness of the different vaccines available to protect against meningococcal meningitis is so important in the fight against this disease.
In bringing together The Kimberly Coffey and Emily Stillman Foundations to combat meningitis B, we can have optimism that our young adults will know to request vaccines to protect more fully against meningococcal disease.
As a mother and nurse, I value the educational efforts these foundations are undertaking to spread the word about the importance of getting protection from all meningococcal strains. Vaccination is the best way to protect children, no matter their age, from vaccine preventable diseases.
