October 5th is World Meningitis Day. Pediatrician, Dr. Shakha Gillin, joined Inside South Florida to share the importance of teens and young adults being vaccinated against this potentially deadly disease just in time for back-to-school.

“Ask2BSure is a health awareness campaign created by GSK to help educate and empower parents to ask about meningitis B vaccination,” says Gillin.

Meningitis b is an acute illness with severe complications.

“One in 10 will die despite medical care in as quickly as 24 hours, and one in five will have permanent damage, such as limb loss, hearing loss and permanent brain damage. “The meningitis B vaccination has been available since 2014. Yet in 2021, seven out of 10, 17-year-old children had not received one dose of meningitis b vaccination,” says Gillin. “Parents can go to and learn about meningitis b, the meningitis b vaccination, and find out from their physicians if they've had the meningitis b vaccination.”
