University Health Services is recommending that students at the highest risk of contracting meningoccocal disease receive serogroup B vaccinations.  Four days of walk-in clinics are taking place in the Student Union Cape Cod Lounge.

Those at the highest risk include: all undergraduates, graduate students living in undergraduate housing, and all students with conditions such as asplenia, a complement deficiency, sickle cell anemia or those taking the medication Solaris. This includes both on-campus and off-campus students.

To make the process as orderly as possible for everyone involved, UHS encourages students to follow the suggested day of participation, if the student's schedule allows. Graduate students may select any of the four days.

  • Thursday, November 30, first and second-year students preferred
  • Friday, December 1, first and second-year students preferred
  • Monday, December 4, third and fourth-year students preferred
  • Tuesday, December 5, third and fourth-year students preferred

The cost to receive the meningococcal vaccine will be billed to  the student’s health insurance.  Bring you insurance card to the walk-in clinic.  More information about insurance coverage is on page 5-6 of the "Frequently Asked Questions: Serogroup B Meningococcal Disease" document at https://tinyurl.com/yao7vkqh
