    Important Vaccine Information for Students

    We are seeing an outbreak of chickenpox. This is a highly contagious illness. Students should report to the Center for Health immediately if they develop a rash. We offer immunizations and encourage all students to make sure their vaccines are up to date.

    One vaccine that is highly recommended is the meningitis vaccine. Many students forget to receive their meningitis booster after age 16. Please visit the Center for Health for your booster.
