Meningococcal disease is an uncommon, unpredictable, and serious disease that can include meningitis (infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) and/or sepsis (blood infection). Even with appropriate treatment, roughly 1 in 10 people who contract meningococcal meningitis or sepsis die. Death can occur within 24 to 48 hours from the start of symptoms, and those who survive may face severe consequences, such as loss of arms or legs, brain damage,
