CBS Philly

PRINCETON, NJ (CBS) – Princeton University has confirmed its eighth case of meningitis this year.

In an email to the campus community, Vice President for Campus Life Cynthia Cherrey says that the student developed symptoms Wednesday night and went to the University’s health center.

She is now receiving treatment at a local hospital.

On Monday, the university announced it would be vaccinating students with a shot that protects against meningococcal disease caused by serogroup B (see previous story).

That vaccine is approved for use in Europe and Australia but not the United States; however, the CDC and the FDA are allowing it to be used on Princeton’s campus.
