Meningitis Information Sheet
I am writing to inform you about menigococcal disease (a potentially fatal bacterial infection
commonly referred to as meningitis) and a new law in New York State. On July 22, 2003, the
New York State Public Health Law (NYS PHL) was amended to include section 2167 requiring
overnight children’s camps to distribute information about meningococcal disease and
vaccination to the parents or guardians of all campers who attend camp for 7 or more nights. This
law became effective on August 15, 2003.
Camp AmeriKids is required to maintain a record of the following for each camper:
• A response to receipt of meningococcal meningitis disease and vaccine information
signed by the camper’s parent/guardian; AND
• Information on the availability and cost of meningococcal meningitis vaccine
• A record of meningococcal meningitis immunization within the past 10 years, OR
• An acknowledgement of meningoococcal meningitis disease risks and refusal of
meningococcal meningitis immunization signed by the camper’s parent/guardian.
Meningitis is rare. However, when it strikes, its flu-like symptoms make diagnosis difficult. If
not treated early, meningitis can lead to swelling of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal
column as well as severe and permanent disabilities, such as hearing loss, brain damage,
seizures, limb amputation and even death.
Cases of meningitis among teens and young adults 15-24 years of age have more than doubled
since 1991. The disease strikes about 3,000 Americans each year and claims about 300 lives.
A vaccine is available that protects four types of the bacteria that cause meningitis in the United
States---types A, C, Y and W-135. These types account for nearly two thirds of meningitis cases
Information about the availability and cost of the vaccine can be obtained from your local
healthcare provided and by visiting the manufacturer’s website www.meningitisvaccine.com.
Camp AmeriKids is not able to provide this vaccine.
Please complete the Meningococcal Vaccination Response Form and return it to:
To learn more about meningitis and the vaccine, please feel free to contact Gaby Moss, and/or
consult your child’s physician. You can also find information about the disease at the New York
State Department of Health website: www.health.state.NY.us, and
Meningitis Vaccination Form
