Meningococcus is a bacterium that can cause very serious infections, such as bloodstream infections (septicemia) or of the membrane surrounding the brain (meningitis), particularly in children. It is transmitted through contact with nose or throat secretions of an infected person, even if he/she does not present any symptoms of the illness. Transmission of the illness generally requires close contact between individuals. Certain hygienic practices, such as frequent handwashing, help to reduce the risk of transmission. This being said, vaccination remains the most effective way to protect against meningococcal infections.
Quebec: A nurse can administer the vaccine directly at the pharmacy.
New Brunswick and Ontario: A nurse or pharmacist are available to administer the vaccine directly at the pharmacy.
