Pittsburg State University requires that all students living in campus housing receive the meningitis vaccine or sign a waiver indicating their knowledge of the risks of bacterial meningitis and their refusal to be vaccinated. Anyone receiving the vaccine prior to move-in day must provide appropriate documentation. Documentation of vaccination status will be maintained in University Housing.

All other students are encouraged to become knowledgeable about bacterial meningitis and its symptoms and to consider vaccination in order to reduce their personal risk. For more information regarding meningitis click here: http://www.immunize.org/vis/menin06.pdf
