Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Required
Effective January 1, 2012, all new students and those who are returning after a one semester absence and under the age of 30 will be required to show evidence that they have received the bacterial meningitis vaccination or eligible for an exemption prior to enrolling. The vaccination dose or booster must be during the five-year period preceding and at least 10 days prior to the first day of class or prior to moving into on-campus housing (whichever is applicable). Students taking online courses only (no on-campus based courses) are not required to have the vaccination. Send evidence of the vaccination or qualified exemption to UTPB Admissions, 4901 E University Blvd, Odessa, TX 79762.
You must provide proof of immunization via an official immunizations record. An official record includes the day, month and year of the vaccination and 1) is signed or stamped by a physician or physician’s designee, or 2) is an immunization record from a public health authority, either state or local, or 3) is an immunizations record from a school official.
If you are not immunized 10 days prior to your arrival to UTPB, you will not be allowed to move into your assigned student housing.
If receiving the meningococcal vaccine would endanger your health, you must provide a signed affidavit from a registered and licensed physician that states in his/her opinion the required vaccination would be injurious to your health and well-being. If you need to decline the vaccination for reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, you must complete the conscientious exemption form from the Texas Department of State Health Services available at any Texas health department or online at https://webds.dshs.state.tc.us/immco/affidavit.shtm.
We encourage you to read more about the requirements on the Texas Department of health Services website, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Student Housing Office.
Information for Fall Move-in 2013 will be available soon.
