Princeton University Awaits Word on Meningitis Vaccine

Princeton University students are taking precautions after a seventh meningitis case on campus this year is prompting efforts to offer them a vaccine currently unavailable in the U.S.

Since the outbreak in March, the Princeton, New Jersey-based Ivy League school has reached out to students and parents through posters and e-mails on ways to protect themselves, including not sharing cups. In September, Princeton distributed almost 5,000 plastic 16-ounce tumblers with the message “Mine. Not Yours.”
