USF to Require Meningitus Vaccinations

September 27th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

The Board of Governors of the state university system is working on a plan to require all students living on campuses, and perhaps almost all students, to be vaccinated for meningitis. The rule will likely take effect in the fall, but the University of South Florida President Judy Genshaft says it will begin requiring proof of the vaccinations in the spring.

“We are going ahead in saying that all students that live in Residents Halls must have a vaccination or proof of the vaccination, this is too important of an issue, this is an infections disease which means that can spread everywhere and it’s so lethal so quickly and we are not going to tolerate it”
Requiring all students to be vaccinated to enter a Florida university would take an act of the legislature.
