About risk factors:
Risk factors for Meningococcal disease are factors that do not seem
to be a direct cause of the disease,
but seem to be associated in some way.
Having a risk factor for Meningococcal disease
makes the chances
of getting a condition higher but does
not always lead to Meningococcal disease.
Also, the absence of any risk factors
or having a protective factor does not necessarily
guard you against getting Meningococcal disease.
