Welcome to MAK
MAK is a nonprofit health education organization dedicated to increasing public awareness about meningococcal meningitis, its symptoms & transmission, debilitating effects, risks and prevention measures.
MAK carries out its mission by providing up-to-date information through our awareness presentations, support of legislations, promotion of vaccination and collaboration with other organizations in the prevention of meningitis.
What MAK Does
1. Meningitis Awareness presentations and participation in health fairs – MAK gives presentations to the public for FREE and provides mentoring to students.
2. Advocacy – MAK works with legislators to aid in their consideration of bills and resolutions addressing meningitis and youth health safety concerns. We also encourage physicians to recommend the vaccination to all at risk people and ideally motivate parents to consider vaccination for their children.
3. Collaboration – MAK collaborates with other organizations and individuals in the delivery of services by providing resources and assistance.
Contact your doctor or go to an emergency room, immediately, if you think you or someone might have meningitis.
Learn what you can about meningitis, its transmission, symptoms, treatment & ways to protect yourself.
CDC recommends meningococcal meningitis vaccination at age 11 and above with a booster dose at age 16.
