Whilst there are vaccines available, they do not prevent all types of the disease and it can be a common misconception that it is a disease of the past. However, in the UK there are still thousands of cases reported each year.
As a Pharmacist, you have a valuable role to play in raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of meningitis and helping people maximise the benefit of the national immunisation programme to reduce incidence of the disease. Within your community, there are people who are living with the after effects of meningitis and you can play an important part in supporting them.
