World Meningitis Day

Alyson Is Spokes Person For World Meningitis Day

April 24th is World Meningitis Day, a time to help bring awareness to a terrible disease that especially impacts infants, children and youth.  I have been involved with the campaign to bring awareness to parents about this disease.  My hope is that every parent has the basic facts about meningitis and makes an appointment to speak with their doctor to review their child’s vaccination status.   Like so many other parents, I had assumed my children were protected because all the tick boxes were marked on their immunization card.  I didn’t know that my children could be symptom free and healthy, yet carrying germs that could prove fatal to another.   Here is a short video with some highlights you should know.  Take 3 minutes now to learn about this disease that can claim a life within 24 hours of the first onset of symptoms.

    This video does not teach parents even one thing about meningitis. Waste of 3 minutes.
