Meningitis is a rare but serious illness, with a high risk for young adults – especially those under 25 who live in close quarters with others, like residence halls or Greek housing.

 

By college, most students have received a standard 4-strain meningitis vaccine. For full protection, we strongly recommend you also get a meningitis type B vaccine.

 

For meningitis B, we currently offer BEXSERO, a two-dose vaccine. You’ll need to wait at least a month after getting the first dose to come in for your second, but you can get the second dose any time after that. BEXSERO is approved for use in individuals 10 through 25 years of age.

 

You can see a full list of the immunizations we offer on our services page or give us a call for details at 509-335-3575.
