Answer

Advise any household contacts and close respiratory contacts that chemoprophylaxis agents are available to eliminate the carrier state and prevent the spread of infection. [10]

For patient education information, see the Brain and Nervous System Center, as well as Meningitis in Adults and Meningitis in Children.
