Most colleges now require MRSA vaccines for every student, and rightfully so. MRSA, or Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, is a virus that is both a “superbug” and a flesh-eating virus.

Most people who get MRSA have it start off as a skin infection. If left untreated, the infection spreads and turns flesh necrotic. If left even longer, it can cause severe pain, organ failure, and death.
