4 Risk factors of Meningitis


Meningitis can occur in people of all ages, but babies, children, and those with a weakened immune system are at the highest risk. Babies between birth and 1 month of age are more likely to develop a severe viral infection. Smoking can also raise the risk of certain types of meningitis. Knowing the risk factors may help lower the risk of getting infected. Speak to the doctor if your child or a loved one has any of these risk factors. #WorldMeningitisDay
