The State of New Jersey requires that students and parents are aware of a potentially life threatening disease called Meningococcal Meningitis. All parents and students are required to read the letter concerning meningitis for Undergraduates and Graduate / CSS students and information regarding an available vaccine. The student’s decision regarding the vaccine must be recorded on the front side of the Student Health Record. Graduate and CCS students must complete the VACCINE REPORTING FORM and return it to the Health Center with your option clearly indicated.

As a condition of residency, all residential students will be required to receive the vaccine against Meningococcal Meningitis. The date of vaccination, as with the dates of the other required vaccines, must be recorded on the Student Health Record in order for students to fulfill their Health Services requirements.
