Meningitis is an inflammation of meninges (protective covering of the brain). According to a research, approximately 10% out of the total infected people will die from meningitis, despite prompt and appropriate treatment. The survivors (almost 20%) may have long-lasting medical issues such as brain damage, loss of limbs, seizures, loss of hearing and more. Given the disastrous effects of this disease, it is essential to get vaccinated. At the Touchwood Pharmacy, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and offer the meningitis vaccination Northampton at affordable rates.
What is Meningitis?
It is an infection of the lining around the brain or spinal cord. The meningococcal disease can cause meningitis. One can catch this infection through close contact with someone who has the meningococcal bacteria in their nose or throat. Initial symptoms of meningitis are comparable to cold or flu. However, symptoms become severe rapidly and could include a headache, vomiting, nausea, stiff neck, purplish rash on arms and legs, sudden high fever, fatigue, and changes in mental state.
