This educational and compelling video conveys the importance of young people receiving the meningococcal meningitis vaccine before going to college. Since adolescents ages 16 to 21 have the highest rates of meningococcal meningitis, the video tells the story of two college students: Jamie Schanbaum, a University of Texas student who had both of her legs amputated because of meningitis in 2008, and Nicolis Williams, a Texas A&M University student who died in early 2011 from the disease.
