University of Findlay students were urged to get meningitis vaccinations Thursday night. The Courier reports several people spoke about the dangers of bacterial meningitis during a forum on the subject. State Senator Cliff Hite was one of the people on hand. He was a sponsor of “Tess’ Law,” which makes March 9 an awareness day for bacterial meningitis.
Hite was also 5-year-old Tess Wilson’s uncle. Bacterial meningitis took her life on March 9 of 1999. Her father spoke at the event, as did the mother of a 19-year-old who died from the diseases in 1997. Cindy Krenjy told the students on hand that parents never get over the death of a child as she urged them to get vaccinated.
