Meningitis Shot
Nov 17, 2005

I'm a college freshman, and they require us to get Meningitis shots. (fun, huh?) Firstly, I am incredibly phobic of shots. I pass out the minute it goes past the first layer of skin. My heart slows, my entire body turns white as a sheet, and I faint. It never fails.

Well, I am scheduled to get this shot next wednesday (my birthday - oh joy!). And I really don't know much about this vaccine.

My questions are:
1. Where do they inject it? (a normal "arm" injection?)
2. How much does it hurt?
3. What are the side effects?
4. What people should not get this vaccine? (people with certain problems and such)

Thank you in advance.
