Judy Miller

Judy’s Story

Judy Miller’s daughter, Beth, was away at college when she was rushed to the hospital with classic symptoms of the flu. Doctors diagnosed Beth with meningococcal disease, a potentially fatal bacterial infection. One day later, Beth died from this potentially vaccine-preventable disease. Judy knew about the risks associated with meningitis for infants, but was unaware adolescents and college students are at increased risk.
