Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 06/27/06 Letter to the Editor: A study is under way in Galveston to determine whether an investigational vaccine that may protect against bacterial infections is safe and effective for infants. My highest praises go to Dr. Christine Turley and her team for this wonderful new research on infant meningitis (The Daily News, June 23). It will save many lives and the health of infants. I am the founder and national director for Meningitis Angels Heaven and Earth Bound Inc., which is based here in Texas. I am also the mother of an only child, Ryan, who died with meningitis at age 18. Many of our angels across the country are or were infants. We should also be reminded that many people are not educated on the disease or the vaccines. We all need to be aware that Texas ranks at the bottom on immunizations.
