Ciprofloxacin is sometimes given to people who have been in close contact with a person who has meningococcal infection. The purpose of taking this antibiotic is to get rid of any meningococcal bacteria being carried in the nose and throat of contacts and therefore help prevent the disease from spreading to others.
