Meningococcal Disease Information:
According to section 118.07(3) of the state statutes, each school district must provide the parents/guardians of students enrolled in grades 6 – 12 with information about meningococcal disease (commonly known as bacterial meningitis).

  • Meningococcal bacteria can potentially be transmitted through close contact with an infected person through direct contact with respiratory and/or oral secretions from an infected person (for example, through sharing drinking containers or kissing)

  • Meningococcal disease can be misdiagnosed as something less serious, because of early symptoms like high fever, severe headache, nausea, vomiting and stiff neck

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other leading medical organizations recommends that all 11 – 12 year olds be vaccinated with meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4).  A booster shot is recommended for teens at age 16 to continue providing protection when their risk for meningococcal disease is highest.


For more information about meningococcal disease and immunization, please feel free to contact our school nurse at 262-348-4002 (Joint-1) or 262-348-2002 (Badger) or visit the following websites to learn more about meningococcal disease, vaccine information, and public health resources:
