Question: 

I work in a middle school Iam 36 years old and am unsure if I had my grade 9 menegoccal vaccine . Should I have a vaccine ?

Answer: 

You are not in the age group that would have received meningococcal vaccine in school in BC. Over the past six months, Interior Health has seen an increasing number of cases of meningococcal disease in 15 to 19 year olds. The risk to the general population is low. For more  information about the outbreak in the Okanangan, please check the Interior Health website here. The meningococcal vaccine is available for purchase at travel clincs and pharmacies. We recommend that you consult your immunization provider for further questions.
