Meningococcal Vaccination Policy

Effective fall 2002, it is the policy of Northwest Missouri State University that the meningococcal vaccination is required for all freshmen students who will be residing on campus for the first time. Documentation of immunization is required from a health care provider.

All freshmen students are provided with information about meningococcal disease. If the student chooses not to have the vaccine, he/she must provide a signed waiver along with a waiver acknowledgment signed by a parent/guardian.

University Wellness Services continues to strongly recommend the meningococcal vaccine for all students and provides ongoing education in support of said recommendation.
