Three More South Aussies Struck Down With Meningococcal

Three more South Aussies have fallen ill with Meningococcal.

A 20 year old woman from metropolitan Adelaide, a 31 year old male and a 51 year old female from regional SA are all in a stable condition in hospital.

One case is the B-strain, one the W-strain, while the third is yet to be identified.

Vaccines for both are currently not on the nation's tax-payer funded program.

SA Health says there's no risk of the disease spreading to the public, despite people in contact with them being told to take antibiotics.

We're being reminded that the risk of contracting the disease in winter and spring is greater.

So far this year 1 people have fallen ill with the disease compared to 12 this time last year.
