Say ouch: Vaccinations aren’t just for children

While college kids are busy decorating dorms, reviewing class schedules and meeting new roommates, they shouldn’t forget to make sure all their immunizations are up-to-date as they enter those hallowed halls of higher learning. Even though most vaccinations are given in early childhood or early adolescence, college students and young adults need specific immunizations, too. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, all incoming first-time or transfer students (21 years or younger) are required by law to receive a meningococcal vaccination (or booster, if it has been longer than five years) at least 10 days prior to the first day of class (or 10 days prior to moving into campus housing).    Comments (0)
