Three people have lost their lives this month due to meningococcal.
Health Minister, Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete says all the deaths were recorded in the Western Division where the youngest is a 4 year old child.
He says the other two were in their 20's.
Meningococcal is a life threatening disease and six people have died so far this year due this deadly disease.
Bacteria and viruses are the two main causes of meningitis.
The bacteria also called meningococcus, causes meningococcal meningitis.
It can cause infections in the lining of the brain and in the blood, or both.
The Health Ministry has stressed that these conditions are very serious and can be deadly but can be treated if detected early.
It adds that identifying symptoms early and seeking urgent medical treatment at a health facility is critical and will give a person the best chance of survival.
A person may start to feel sick within 3 to 7 days after coming in contact with the bacteria.
