Health Information

New Meningococcal Vaccine Requirement for Colleges

Important information for high school students planning on continuing their
education at colleges or universities in Connecticut:
 
Beginning with the 2002-2003 academic year, each public or private college
or university in the state must require each student who resides in on-campus
residence halls to be vaccinated against meningitis as a condition of residence.
Students who have medical contraindications to receiving the vaccine, or
who present a statement that such vaccination would be contrary to their
religious beliefs are exempt from receiving the vaccine.
 
Students should contact their health care provider for further information or
to get vaccinated.  In addition your college or university, your local board of
health or the Connecticut Department of Public Health can also give you
information.
