Princeton University has seen seven of its students hospitalized this year as a result of a meningitis outbreak, The New York Times reported. In response, the administration urged students to stop sharing drinks at parties and avoid kissing. Princeton officials are considering the use of a vaccine, Bexsero, that has not been approved in the United States, to treat its student body. Meningitis vaccinations are already required for most students at Princeton and other New Jersey four-year colleges by state law, but the particular strain at Princeton is not covered by the vaccine commonly used in America. Due to the concentrated outbreak at Princeton, the Food and Drug Administration gave special permission to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to import Bexsero.
