Meningitis B vaccine clinics for incoming students, others

Saturday, Sept. 6 and Tuesday, Sept. 9, various times Frist Campus Center, Multipurpose Room

The University will hold meningitis B vaccine clinics from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Frist Campus Center, Level B in the Multipurpose Room.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all Princeton University undergraduate students and eligible graduate students, as well as members of the University community with specific medical conditions, receive a vaccine that helps protect against meningococcal disease caused by serogroup B bacteria.

All incoming freshmen and eligible graduate students, as well as eligible individuals who did not receive the vaccine last academic year, may receive the meningitis B vaccine at the September clinics.

Because protection provided by the first dose declines over time, two doses of the vaccine are needed for full immunity. Another vaccine clinic will be scheduled for October.

Please review the information about eligible campus groups, requirements to receive the vaccine and other clinic details on the University's meningitis website.
