The Health Service will hold a Meningitis B vaccine clinic on Thursday, September 27. Please call the Health Service at 724-357-2550 to get more information or to schedule your appointment.

Meningitis B is a growing concern on college campuses. Most students have received the Meningitis vaccine for A, C, W, and Y, as a state requirement prior to starting college; however, until recently, there was no vaccine to prevent Meningitis B. Students ages 17–23 are at the highest risk for Meningitis B, with a 9 percent greater risk for college students vs. non-college students.
