Meningitis Immunization

Texas state law (Senate Bill 1107) requires all students, 21 years of age and under, who are entering a public, private or independent institution of higher education in Texas to provide proof of immunization for bacterial meningitis. You will be notified by email if you are required to provide this documentation and you cannot register for classes until this requirement is met. Step-by-step instructions on how to upload your documents, information about exemptions and where to get the meningitis vaccination can be found on the Texas State Health Center Website.
