In a very serious local meningococcal case; a 20 year old Prineville woman continues to fight for her life at St. Charles Bend. Stephany Mullen remains in critical condition today. In the latest development; lab tests just came back and are showing that Mullen has the same strain as two other cases that hit Crook Country earlier this year. Crook County spokesperson Karen Yeargain explains: "Sero-Group C was responsible in two of the three cases we saw in Crook County earlier this year. What that tells us is that we do have this strain circulating in our community. It’s impossible to know whether there's more of it than their would be otherwise or not. We only know who gets sick;  we do know that Crook County has been coughing and hacking for a couple of months. Crook County has a high rate of upper respiratory illnesses, and we're also seeing that last spring.” All off the Crook County people affected by this did have an upper respiratory illness within two weeks prior to their meningococcal onset.  Yeargain says there is a vaccine available to prevent the "C" strain of meningococcal, and she says its also a good idea to get a flu shot.
