Meningitis Information

Bacterial Meningitis Immunization is REQUIRED by State Law

Effective January 2014, the State of Texas requires all first-time students and/or transfer students who are 21 years or younger to receive a vaccination for Bacterial Meningitis.  The vaccine must be obtained within five years preceding enrollment or a booster is required. A student must receive vaccination or booster at least 10 days prior to the first of class or moving into campus housing, whichever is first. 

Written evidence of vaccination must be submitted to UMHB.  To submit your Meningitis information, send your official documentation of Meningitis vaccination to us by mail, fax, or e-mail.
