Students Inoculated for Meningitis Outbreak

From Times Wire Reports

With grimaces and brave looks, the first of up to 5,800 Ohio high school students and teachers rolled up their sleeves and got their shots in a mass inoculation against a meningitis-related outbreak that has killed two teenagers.

The outbreak has spread fear and confusion through Salem, a blue-collar area about 40 miles from Cleveland. Classes and graduations were canceled, and thousands of students and parents stood in line at vaccination centers set up at schools.

The mass vaccinations were recommended by the state Health Department for students and staff at six schools.
