Graduating Seniors – Meningitis Vaccinations

The passage of Senate Bill (SB) 1107, 82nd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, requires that all students entering Texas institutions of higher education to be vaccinated against bacterial meningitis within the last five years and at least 10 days prior to the first day of class. If you have received the meningitis immunization (Menactra) after September 2010, you meet the minimum criteria. If not, schedule your appointment early. The school will NOT be sponsoring a meningitis clinic to update these shots. Vaccines through Texas Vaccines for Children program are no longer available to vaccinate students with insurance.
