Greetings! Thank you for your enquiry.

I understand you are curious about your friend’s condition. However, it is best to ask your friend’s attending doctor for the real diagnosis as I have not enough information on your friend’s condition. However, the indications for meningococcal vaccine are as follows:

  • Having certain medical conditions
  • Taking specific medications
  • Travel
  • Profession like healthcare professionals
  • A meningococcal disease outbreak

Based on your brief explanation, this may be a case of menigococcal meningitis. The symptoms may come on quickly. Many infected people (5-10%) become asymptomatic carriers of the bacteria and serve as a reservoir and source of infection for others.

Meningococcal meningitis has a sudden onset of intense headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, photophobia and stiff neck, plus various neurological signs.

The disease is fatal in 5-10% of cases even with prompt antimicrobial treatment. This vaccine is not our routine vaccine in Malaysia. However, it is available in clinics.

You may get online consultations with our doctors here for medical advice and treatments. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
