What happens when you find out your college roommate has a serious infectious disease, and you could be next? What if it's a disease you could have been vaccinated against, but your parents didn't vaccinate you for it? What will the college officials do now? Make the vaccine mandatory, or continue to let families have a choice? Does the meningococcal vaccine even prevent the spread of this disease? And are there any side effects to worry about?
