Health officials in Nova Scotia say Acadia University in Wolfville is dealing with an outbreak of meningitis after confirming that a second student contracted the same strain of the disease linked to the death of a young woman at the school.

(He adds a vaccination program for all students and staff with certain health conditions will begin next Wednesday at the campus.)
