The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has approved the distribution of a new vaccine -- approved in Europe but not yet generally approved for use in the U.S. -- at the University of California at Santa Barbara, NBC News reported. That university has had an outbreak of meningitis that is not prevented by vaccines used in the U.S. The meningitis reported at Santa Barbara is similar to that at Princeton University, which in December with CDC approval vaccinated thousands of students with the new vaccine.
