Meningitis vaccination needed for college
Jim King, vice president of Student Affairs at Louisiana Tech University, said the news was not really a surprise.
“We saw this one coming,” King said. “It’s been talked about in the media for a while, and it should not have caught anyone off guard.”
King said the university would check for the vaccination the same way it checks for a student’s MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccination.
“While there is a way for a student to opt out of the vaccination if they want, we encourage all students to get the vaccination,” King said.
