Friends of Personal Medicine,

I came across this site called Voices of Meningitis. It shows some pretty powerful videos of how kids like you can be affected by meningococcal disease. I didn’t realize that this potentially deadly bacterial infection can take the life of an otherwise healthy teen in just 1 day.1-5 It’s time we got you vaccinated!

Check out the site when you have a few minutes.
