Public Health Warns Of Possible Meningococcal Disease

Public health officials in both Shasta and Tehama Counties are dealing with a case of suspected Meningococcal Disease. The Tehama County resident had apparently been in recent contact with staff and patients at Pulse Urgent Care in Redding. All of the people in both counties believed to have had close contact with the patient have been treated with antibiotics. The disease is spread through spit or saliva and it can take one of five different forms. Symptoms include fever, headache, nausea vomiting, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, a rash and excessive sleepiness. A vaccine is available, and lasts at least 3 years.
