CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University continues its efforts to help students meet the requirements for Meningococcal B vaccinations. It will hold three days of vaccination clinics this week at its Corvallis campus.

According to the university, the clinics are in response to a new university requirement that all OSU Corvallis students, 25 and under, must be vaccinated against Meningococcal B by Feb. 15. This requirement went into effect because six OSU students have been diagnosed with the disease since November 2016. To date, 48 percent of OSU students 25 and under have completed the vaccination requirement.

The clinics, which are being offered in partnership with Fred Meyer Pharmacy, will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesday, Feb. 13 to Thursday, Feb. 15.

Check-in will occur in the Student Experience Center Plaza outside the Memorial Union. No appointment is required. Students should attend regardless of insurance coverage, and staff will be available to discuss options.

During similar clinics last month, 6,400 students were vaccinated.

Since then, university officials have continued to send e-mails and text messages to students and their families about the need to be vaccinated. University staff said there are more than 9,000 students who still need to get a final dose or provide documentation that they have completed their vaccinations before Feb. 15 to meet the requirement and avoid a registration hold for spring term classes.

For more information regarding the university’s new vaccination requirement and exemptions, call the Office of Student Life, 541-737-6362 (MENB).
