MENINGITIS B INFORMATION
Meningitis B is a growing concern on college campuses. Most students have received the Meningitis vaccine for A, C, Y, W, as a state requirement prior to starting college; however until recently there was no vaccine to prevent Meningitis B. Students ages 17 - 23 are at the highest risk for Meningitis B with a 9% greater risk for college students vs. non-college students. 

Meningitis B vaccines will be available on 8/25/2018 at the Health Center located on the 1st floor of Beck Hall from 9:00 AM - 3 PM. Fax a completed Consent Form and copies of your medical insurance and prescription cards (front and back) to 484-646-4159 or drop it off at the Health Center by August 10th.
