In response to those complaining about the cost of meningitis vaccination shots, it is important for everyone to be educated about the severity of the disease. College students are especially at risk because we all live in such close proximity to one another. I will never understand why Nic Williams had to be the one to pass away. He was loved by everyone that knew him, and I feel like he contributed greatly to our University, just as everyone would expect — as did Jamie Schanbaum, from the University of Texas, who lost her fingers and legs as a result of the disease. A lot of people think they will never contract meningitis, but not getting vaccinated in Nic's case meant death.
