You can thank the reappearance of many diseases on illegal aliens from 3rd world countries who have never been immunized.
This is why there is a proper process to enter the country legally.
Along with the value of the dollar, slowly this once great nation is being turned into a 3rd world country.
If Hillary gets in we're done for.
AMEN!

The American government has one job and that is to protect the United States Citizens. Where is our government and why are they not protecting us? These illegals are infesting our schools with God knows what kind of diseases. Remember the staff infections plaguing our community? Our government cannot even protect our children from the lead filled toys from China.

Meningitis is not a disease that is brought from other countries. It is right here. Mexico, for instance has a much higher vaccination rate than the US. 95 percent vs 79 percent-so if you are going to be a hater, at least use a real excuse.

The Meningitis Foundation of America (MFA), a national organization, would like the public and media to know that information is available regarding the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of meningitis. MFA was founded by parents whose children were affected by meningitis. In addition to supporting vaccines and other means of preventing meningitis, the MFA provides information to educate the public and medical professionals so that the early diagnosis, treatment and, most important, prevention of meningitis, will save lives.

Meningitis is a dangerous and sometimes fatal inflammation of the brain and/or spinal cord that can leave survivors with serious life-long physical problems such as deafness, brain damage and other disabilities. Complications from bacterial meningitis can sometimes result in loss of limbs.

MFA has many spokespersons available. If you would like to arrange an interview with a spokesperson please call Scott Lawson, Development Director or myself Jamie Callahan, General Manager of the MFA. A MFA press kit and, for television producers, b-roll footage is available upon request. For further information, visit the MFA website at www.musa.org .

Thank you,

Ms. Jamie Callahan, General Manager
