Meningitis Immunization

No one likes getting vaccinations, but being at risk for Meningococcal Meningitis is even less fun. If you are 21 or younger, you’ll need to submit written proof that you’ve received either the vaccination or a booster dose within the last five years before registering for classes. It’s a state law!

Note: only the quadrivalent vaccine, which protects against 4 types of meningitis (MCV4, MPSV4), will be accepted. Meningitis B vaccines do not meet the requirement.

Where can I get vaccinated?

We have a limited supply of the meningitis vaccination available which is free to UTSA students. If you are interested in receiving your vaccination at UTSA, you can schedule an appointment by calling Wellness 360 at 210-458-4142. You will need to bring a photo ID to your appointment. You can also contact one of the following to receive your vaccination:

  • Your Healthcare Provider
  • San Antonio Metropolitan Health District at (210) 207-8790
  • Your local pharmacy (CVS, Walgreens, HEB, etc.)
