All clinics are taking place in UHS Room 302.

Students who have not received any vaccine for Meningitis B can receive the first dose at one of these clinics.

Students who received the first dose of the Meningitis B vaccine at UHS before Thanksgiving break can come in for the second dose during one of these clinics. Check the date of the first vaccine to make sure at least 28 days have elapsed before receiving the second dose.

Fortunately, we have had only two cases of disease during this outbreak, and the two students are recovering. As you prepare for your time away from campus, please remember the “health smart” tips to prevent the spread of meningococcal disease. These measures, recommended by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, include: Do not share anything that comes in contact with the mouth – water bottles, drinking glasses or cups, face masks, towels, eating utensils, cosmetics, lip balm, toothbrushes, smoking materials, kisses, or drinks from a common source. Also, please wash your hands, and cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
