Yes. Texas Senate Bill 62 requires all entering students under the age of 22, including transfer and graduate students, to submit evidence that they have been vaccinated against Meningococcal Meningitis (bacterial meningitis). The vaccine required must be the MCV4 vaccine or equivalent, and NOT the Meningitis B vaccine.
NOTE: You will not be able to register for classes until the appropriate records are on file in the Office of Health Promotion & Wellness.
The meningitis vaccine must have been received within the last 5 years prior to enrollment. In accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations, the vaccination must have been received at the least after your 16th birthday and within the past five years. This information DOES NOT apply if you're a student 22 years and older OR if you're enrolled only in online or other distance courses.
