Signed form regarding meningococcal disease

Each incoming freshman who will be residing in on-campus housing will be required to return a form indicating that they have received information about meningococcal disease and the availability of the vaccine to prevent contracting the disease and indicating whether or not the student has chosen to receive the vaccination.

The immunizations indicated above are not admission requirements, but shall be required of students as conditions of enrollment in the CSU. A campus is authorized to expand the Measles and Rubella immunization requirement to students born before January 1, 1957, or to require full immunization prior to enrollment without provision for conditional enrollment for certain groups who may have increased risk of exposure to these diseases. These groups include: students enrolled in nutrition and food science, nursing, occupational therapy and any practicum, student teaching or field work involving preschool-age or school-age children, or field work taking place in a hospital or health care setting.

Students can obtain the necessary immunizations from their own provider or by scheduling an appointment with the Student Health Center, 408-924-6122.
