I do not have my Meningitis Vaccine
Any students entering in public, private or independent institutions of higher education must show evidence of having received an initial bacterial meningitis vaccination or booster during the five year period preceding.

If you need the vaccine the UTB Student Health Services Clinic offers the bacterial meningitis vaccine. If you are 18 years of age or younger, the cost of the vaccine is $15. If you are 19 years of age or older, the cost of the vaccine is $109. Student Health Services is located in Cortez Hall #237. No appointment needed, they take walk-ins.
