Advice for parents on Meningitis

A public health specialist advises parents in Kerry to keep an information leaflet on the symptoms of meningitis in the home. Last week a suspected case of the diseases was reported in a preschool child in Tralee. Dr Fiona Ryan advises parents to make sure their children receive the meningitis C vaccine. She says since the vaccination was introduced in 2000, the number of cases have decreased.
