What is Meningococcal Disease?

Meningococcal disease is any illness or condition caused by the Neisseria meningitidis bacteria, which are often severe illnesses that can result in death. The bacteria are transmitted through respiratory secretions, meaning spit and saliva. However, it takes close contact for transmission to occur (kissing, coughing in very close quarters, etc.).

Meningococcal disease most often affects the spinal cord and brain lining, but may also cause infections within the bloodstream. Protect yourself and your children from this disease by scheduling a meningococcal vaccine today.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • What vaccinations do you offer in your clinics?

    We offer a wide range of common vaccinations for people of every age. For children six months and up, we can provide regular vaccines against diseases like hepatitis B, and PCV. For adults, we offer flu shots, and tetanus shots, shingles vaccines, and many more. Contact us and let us know which vaccine you need.

  • How do I know if I need a vaccine?

    To discover which vaccinations you've received, look up your vaccination history. Your vaccination record is a comprehensive document that details the history of all of your vaccines as a youngster and as an adult. To access your vaccination record you can ask your family or doctor if they have your up to date report.

  • Is it safe to get my vaccinations from AFC instead of my regular doctor?

    Yes, AFC offers several services that otherwise are made available only through an appointment at your doctor's office. Whether you need a regular checkup, vaccinations, or lab work, we're able to provide healthcare alongside your general practitioner, so you never need to go without the services you need.
