Oregon Public Health Officials have confirmed a seventh case of meningococcal disease linked to a University of Oregon outbreak that began in mid-January. A 52-year-old man who visited his daughter on the UO campus developed the disease. The University worked quickly to provide prophylaxis to his close contacts. Six previous cases were UO undergraduate students. One case resulted in the death of a student from Meningococcemia on February 17. University of Oregon, Lane County, and Oregon Health Authority are working together to prevent further infections.
People who had close contact with a person diagnosed with type B meningococcal disease related to this outbreak should contact Lane County Health Department at (541) 682-4041. A nurse will help decide if antibiotics are needed to prevent illness.

University of Oregon Students It's Time for Round Two
Need Bexsero 2nd dose? (the 2 dose series of meningococcal vaccine for Meningitis B)
If you need the 2nd dose of Trumenba (the 3 dose series), see the UO Health Center website at https://healthcenter.uoregon.edu/getthevax.aspx for information.
Meningococcus bacteria spread by coughing, sneezing, or close personal contact such as sharing drinks or kissing. You can be a carrier and spread the bacteria without becoming ill. There have been six cases of type B meningococcal disease at the UO since mid-January 2015. One student died. The University of Oregon, Lane County Public Health, and Oregon Health Authority are working to prevent further infections.
