Lori Loughlin is The Voice of Meningitis

Lori Loughlin is The Voice of Meningitis

90210 star Lori Loughlin holds up one cute dog at the 3rd Annual “Bow Wow Wow Hollywood” celebrity fundraising party held at West Hollywood’s The Lot on Saturday (August 22).

The 45-year-old actress is best known for her role on Full House but her most important role is taking care of her family, including her three preteen and teenage children. This is why she had them vaccinated against meningococcal disease including meningitis, which can take the life of a child in just a single day.

“Meningitis has cut short or devastated the lives of too many young people. I didn’t want to take that chance, which is why I wanted to help protect my children by having them vaccinated,” says Lori, who joined the National Association of School Nurses as the national spokesperson for Voices of Meningitis. “I urge parents to ask their child’s school nurse or health-care provider about meningitis prevention and consider vaccination.”

Uh, no thanks love.

A ittle boy I know got meningitis the day after he got the vaccine for it (the vaccine puts the live virus into your system – thus potentially making you contract the very thing it’s meant to “protect” you from) – he was in intensive care for 2 weeks all because his parents made him get the shot.

I would not risk that with my child.
Celebrities will just jump on any old bandwagon to get their faces in the mags nowadays.

N.S. – that is very rare. It is downright senseless not to get vaccinations for your children. Yes, there are risks for everything in life but to take a chance on protecting your child is absurd. If less than 90% of the population does not protect itself with vaccinations for certain diseases there is a very high risk of mass break out of those diseases. There is very good reason that CDC and Doctors push for vaccinations, because they protect the public at large in the long run.

Most colleges make students have the vaccine before attending especially if they will be in the dorms. I worry about the swine flu and all students going back to classes these days. There are a lot of college students that do not have health insurance anymore because their parents don’t or aren’t covered under their policies.
Lack of ins. can destroy a young person’s life in a flash.

she still looks really young
i see her on 90210, but she will always be aunt becky 2 me =p

We lost our son within 15 hours of his first symptom – a headache. Meningitis is real & very dangerous. A simple vaccine would have prevented the worst day of my life. I wish I would have known!!!!

NS, become educated! The vaccine is NOT live. There is no way it can cause meningitis. A child could potentially react to any vaccine, but the benefits outweigh the risks.

On Nov. 12, 2002 the police came to the college where I was teaching and told me that my 20-year old son, Edward J. Bailey, had died that morning in his apartment from meningitis. I fainted and could not fathom what the police officer was telling me. My beautiful son had died!! I knew nothing about the vaccine for this disease, even though both of my sons had every other required vaccine because I did everything to ensure they would outlive ME!!! I’m so thankful that Lori is helping to educate other parents. I hope other families do not ever have to live through this pain.
Parents need to get their children vaccinated and learn the signs and symptoms of this killing disease. Thank you for helping to educate others about meningococcal disease. Ed’s Mom, Gail

The Meningitis Foundation of America (MFA), a national organization, would like the public and media to know that information is available regarding the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of meningitis. MFA was founded by parents whose children were affected by meningitis. In addition to supporting vaccines and other means of preventing meningitis, the MFA provides information to educate the public and medical professionals so that the early diagnosis, treatment and, most important, prevention of meningitis, will save lives. Meningitis is a dangerous and sometimes fatal inflammation of the brain and/or spinal cord that can leave survivors with serious life-long physical problems such as deafness, brain damage and other disabilities, meningitis can sometimes result in loss of limbs. MFA would like to be considered as a news resource for the disease. For further information, visit the MFA website at http://www.musa.org.

MFA is proud to announce the new C.I.S.S. Container Identification Scratch System
When we participate in sporting events or mingle at social gatherings it is possible to lose track of our water bottles and/or beverage cans, especially those served in containers that are very similar or identical to a container from which you are drinking. This carries the risk of transmitting an illness, such as meningitis or the common cold or flu. The Container Identification Scratch System, or C.I.S.S., is a fun way to make sure you always know your drink from others. Use it at sporting events or at family gatherings and reduce the waste from forgotten drinks. Simply scratch your number from the C.I.S.S. label and identify your drink. For more information please contact Bob Gold at Ciss.bob@gmail.com and http://www.musa.org

Thank you,
