We have demonstrated an increased risk of invasive meningococcal disease among school workers in Cheshire, United Kingdom, compared with other adults in that area (relative risk, 6.0; 95% confidence interval, 2.75–13.07). If this trend is observed elsewhere in the United Kingdom, it may have policy implications for the prevention of such disease in this group of individuals.
