Changes in Neisseria meningitidis Disease Epidemiology in the United States, 1998-2007: Implications for Prevention of Meningococcal Disease

This article, published in Clinical Infectious Diseases, describes the epidemiologic landscape of meningococcal disease in the United States from 1998 to 2007, including an analysis of the disease before and during the implementation of adolescent quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccination. The authors conclude that meningococcal disease still causes a substantial disease burden among all age groups, and future vaccination strategies may include targeting infants and preventing serogroup B meningococcal disease.
