The symptoms can range anywhere between fever, headache, neck stiffness to altered mental state in serious cases.
The disease is preventable by vaccination, which helps the body to fight infection and reduce the possible complications. The vaccine is recommended to be taken by all children and adults, boosted every two to three years, especially before traveling. It is mandatory to get the meningococcal vaccine before traveling for hajj and umrah (Islamic Pilgrimage).
