The State of Texas has a law (HR 4189) that requires all first-time freshmen and transfer students who wish to live in campus residence halls or apartments to have a vaccination against bacterial meningitis. All first-time freshmen and transfer students wishing to live on campus after January 1, 2010 must provide the following before moving into campus housing:
If students are over the age of 18, they can complete the form themselves, listing themselves as the parent or legal guardian.
Students are strongly encouraged to visit with their primary care physician or area health clinic as soon as possible to receive the appropriate vaccinations.
