BALTIMORE - Staying busy in college is a good thing, but there's a hidden risk on many campuses that can be deadly: meningitis.
Today on Good Morning Maryland @ 9, Linda So sat down with Linda Davies from MinuteClinic to talk about why college students are so vulnerable to meningitis, why the risks are higher for those living in dorms, the difference between the viral and the bacterial versions of meningitis, and why a meningitis vaccine will help combat the hidden risk. Linda also talked about other shots college students should consider getting before returning to campus.
