New Meningitis Vaccine

Campus Health Services is now carrying Bexsero, a Meningitis B immunization approved by the FDA in early  2015. Meningitis  B was responsible for several meningitis disease outbreaks on college campuses in the U. S. within the past 2 years. The other meningitis vaccines (Menveo and Menactra), which many students have already received, do not cover the B-strain of the meningitis bacteria which caused these recent outbreaks.  Talk to your primary care provider or Campus Health Services if you are interested in receiving this vaccine. To make an appointment for the vaccine, call Campus Health: Belknap- 852-6479 or HSC-852-6446.
