CORVALLIS, Ore. - Safeway stores in Corvallis and Albany said they are now offering the "Meningitis B" vaccine for students who attend Oregon State University.

Officials said this comes in response to the announcement of the sixth case of meningococcal disease at OSU in the last year.

Four stores will offer the vaccine.

Following the most recent case, the school changed its vaccine policy.

The school now requires all students under the age of 25 to be vaccinated by February 15.
