Immunizations

MMR vaccine ( measles,mumps, rubella) $15.00

MENINGITIS VACCINE
The State of Colorado requires a current Meningitis vaccine for students living in residence halls and it is highly recommended for all students. If you choose not to have the Meningitis vaccine and you are living in student housing, you must still read and acknowledge that you understand the risks of non vaccination. This acknowledment will need to be signed when you complete your housing contract.

Meningococcal disease is highly contagious, but a largely preventable infection of the spinal
cord fluid and the fluid that surrounds the brain. Scientific evidence suggests that college
students living in dormitory facilities are at a modestly increased risk of contracting Meningococcal disease. Immunization against Meningococcal disease decreases the risk of contracting the disease. Additional information about this disease is available online at the CDC website or contact your family physician for advice.

Free Meningitis vaccines at the Student Health Center!

Thanks to Sierra's Race against Meningitis, we are able to offer free Meningitis vaccines to anyone 10-55. This includes students, staff, faculty, and family members!

The Center for Disease Control recommends a booster dose for college students if it has been 3 or more years since your last dose. If you are in need of a booster dose, the health center is a walk in clinic, and you can stop in anytime for this most important vaccine.

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION MENINGITIS CLINICS - FREE!
The Meningitis vaccine clinics are scheduled on day two of New Student Orientation and will be held after students have completed their class registration. Clinics will be held in one of the suites at the University Center. There will be signage pointing to the free clnic and this vaccine is available for anyone needing a Meningitis vaccine.

If you have questions about obtaining this vaccine, please call the Immunization Coordinator at 970-351-1919.

If you have questions about immunization records, please call the Immunizations Office at 970-351-1919 or email debra.miller@unco.edu
