Meningitis Immunization Requirements for Students

Effective October 1, 2013, a recent change to Texas state law (SB 62) mandates that all entering students under the age of 22 provide a certificate signed by a health care provider or an official immunization record verifying that the student has been vaccinated against bacterial meningitis, or has received a booster during the five years preceding admission to the University. The vaccine must be received prior to the 10th day before the first day of the semester. 

 

Evidence of Vaccination – Acceptable evidence of vaccination or receipt of a booster includes:

  • Signature or stamp of a physician or his/her designee, or public health personnel on a form which shows the month, day, and year the vaccination dose or booster was administered;

  • An official immunization record generated from a state or local health authority; or

  • An office record received from school officials, including a record from another state.

 

Exemptions from Vaccination Requirement:

  • Student will be age 30 or older on the first day of classes of the semester in which student is enrolled at Wayland Baptist University.

  • Student will be enrolled only in online or distance education courses.

  • Student cannot take the vaccine due to medical reasons. Before students will be allowed to register for classes, WBU must receive an affidavit or a certificate signed by a physician who is duly registered and licensed to practice medicine in the United States, in which it is stated that, in the physician’s opinion, the vaccination required would be injurious to the health and well-being of the student.

  • Student declines vaccine due to reasons of conscience, including a religious belief. Before students will be allowed to register for classes, WBU must receive a completed, notarized, original Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) Vaccine Exemption Affidavit Form. This process takes a significant amount of time. Students will need to begin this process well in advance of the intended registration date.


It is important to consult a physician about the need for the immunization against bacterial meningitis to prevent the disease.
