  • Any first year student less than 22 years of age living in a residence hall who has not received one dose of vaccine should receive a dose.
  • Any student 16 thru 18 years is recommended to get a booster dose of Meningococcal conjugate (MCV4) vaccine if they had a dose before age 16 as long as 2 months have lapsed since the prior dose.
  • Any other student who has an incomplete series of MCV4 vaccine and wishes to be vaccinated could receive the vaccine.
