Student Health Services strongly recommends students complete the Meningitis B vaccine series, especially if you will be living in a dormitory or dorm-style residence.

Recently, there have been outbreaks of meningococcal B at several U.S. colleges and universities. And, both Meningococcal serotype ACYW and Meningococcal serotype B have caused meningitis outbreaks. Meningitis ACYW vaccine does not protect against Meningitis B.

Note: The Meningitis B vaccine does not fulfill the Meningococcal quadrivalent (ACYW) immunization requirements.

More information about Meningitis is available from the Centers for Disease Control.

Vaccine Information Statements are available in many languages from the Immunization Action Coalition.
