MENINGITIS - STATE OF TENNESSEE
NEW MENINGITIS REQUIREMENT
LIVING ON CAMPUS?
ALL NEW INCOMING ON-CAMPUS HOUSING RESIDENTS
IMPORTANT - EFFECTIVE DATE: JULY 1, 2013
Effective July 1, 2013, the Tennessee General Assembly required ALL NEW incoming students under the age of 22 at any public institution of higher learning in the State of Tennessee who live in "ON-CAMPUS" student housing, will be required to provide proof of adequate immunization against Meningococcal disease within the last 5 years, before moving into any on-campus housing. Some exemptions do apply for students who provide the appropriate medical or religious exemption form to University Health Center. New incoming students will not have the option of refusing this immunization without providing University Health Center the appropriately executed medical or religious exemptions.
This new requirement does not currently apply to students already living in on-campus housing but is highly recommended.
This requirement does not replace the Meningitis and Hepatitis Immunization Health History Form. The Meningitis and Hepatitis Immunization Health History Form is a state mandatory requirement.
