All residents of Lenfest Hall are required to receive a meningococcal immunization.
All students (of any age) who will be living in campus housing must submit proof of 1 dose of a meningococcal vaccine that, at minimum, covers serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135. The meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4, such as Menactra or Menveo) is preferred, but the meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine (MPSV4, such as Menomune) is acceptable. Students are exempt from this requirement only if there is a medical contraindication to vaccination or if religious beliefs prohibit immunization. All requests for exemption must be accompanied by a signed copy of the Meningococcal Vaccine Waiver Form in accordance with the College and University Student Vaccination Act. Due to the short time frame of summer-only residential programs, students enrolled in these programs must be in compliance prior to arrival on campus.
