Meningococcal Infection Confirmed in Three Santa Clara University Students
In early 2016, there were three confirmed cases of Meningococcal infection, serogroup B, at Santa Clara University. The health department is working with the University to vaccinate students at Santa Clara University.
In 2014 and 2015, there were two vaccines licensed to protect against infection with this strain of Meningococcal serogroup B. Because this vaccine was just recently licensed, many people are not vaccinated with this immunization. Golden Gate Pediatrics currently has the Bexsero Meningitis B vaccine available. If you are interested in receiving this vaccine, please call our office.
Just a reminder the best way to avoid the spread of illnesses like Meningitis is to not share food or drinks with others.

In light of the current measles outbreak and after careful thought and discussion, we have decided to require our patients to vaccinate according to the AAP policy. We feel this is in the best interest of all of our patients, their families and our community.
