Meningitis at San Diego State University

On September 27th, San Diego County Public Health Services (SDCPHS) confirmed the diagnosis of an additional case of serogroup B meningococcal meningitis at San Diego State University.  This is the 3rd case at SDSU since June of this year.  You can read more about this at http://newscenter.sdsu.edu/sdsu_newscenter/news_story.aspx?sid=77389.

SDCPHS recommends that all undergraduate students at SDSU under 24 years of age who have not been immunized against meningococcus B (MenB) are highly encouraged to get vaccinated with one of the two available meningococcal B vaccines.

We understand that although these cases have not been in our campus community, students and parents may be concerned due to the close proximity of our universities.  Although the recommendation for vaccination has not been issued by SDCPHS for University of San Diego students, if you are concerned, it is reasonable to for our students to get vaccinated with a meningococcal B vaccine if they have not been vaccinated for this in the past.  Most students have not been vaccinated for this as the meningitis vaccine given for routine childhood immunizations does not cover serogroup B.

If you are interested in getting a meningococcal B vaccine, they are available at the health center for a fee.  The health center is only able to direct bill the student insurance plan. If you have a different health insurance plan, it may be more convenient for you to get the vaccine at a pharmacy where they can bill most insurances.  Students are encouraged to call the pharmacy in advance to confirm the vaccine is available and that their insurance is accepted.
