Princeton Students Line Up For Meningitis Vaccine

“Hundreds” seeking it.

Remember how Princeton students went home for Thanksgiving a couple of weeks ago despite a meningitis outbreak on campus? Well, now they’re getting a vaccine finally.

NewsWorks reports: “Princeton University has started offering a meningitis vaccine, yet to be approved in the U.S., to its more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students this week. By Monday evening, the first day of the vaccination effort, at least 1,200 were vaccinated in the main student center.”

The vaccine is available through Wednesday.
