By law in Texas (Texas Education Code, § 51.9192, Subchapter Z), all students under the age of 22 attending classes at Texas institutions of higher education must present proof of immunization for bacterial meningitis or present the appropriate exemption.
Where do I get vaccinated?
With support from
Dallas College Health Services, free meningitis vaccinations are offered in the Health Center at multiple Dallas College campuses. Be sure to bring a photo ID and, if you are under 18 years old, please bring a parent or guardian with you as well.
Students age 22 and older do not need to provide proof of immunization for meningitis.
