Meningitis Clinic Is Planned For Casper
Casper, Wy – Since the death of a student this week to meningitis, Casper College officials have announced that a vaccination clinic will be held April 1st.
The clinic will be held from 9 a-m to noon at the Student Health Center.
The vaccinations will be administered by the Casper-Natrona County Health Department at a cost of 80-dollars.
Health officials recommend that students 30 and younger living in dorms or apartments with multiple roommates receive the inoculation.
A female student died Tuesday at an off-campus apartment from the disease, which can cause fatal swelling of the brain and spinal cord.
