Recent cases of meningococcal meningitis resulting in a fatality at an Oregon college campus have prompted the passing of SB 274, effective as of January 2018. This bill requires Oregon colleges and universities that offer student housing to inform new students about immunization-prevented illnesses.
The University Health & Counseling Center encourages all students and staff members to be informed of symptoms and risks associated with these immunization-prevented illnesses. We promote prevention through vaccination and awareness. Please review this information provided by the Oregon Health Authority regarding symptoms of these immunization-prevented illnesses, preventive measures, recommended and required vaccines, and information regarding these vaccines. This information will be distributed to students, faculty, and staff members at the beginning of the spring semester.
