Frequently Asked Questions

Measles/Rubella are childhood diseases with potentially serious effects on adult health.

Hepatitis B is a viral infection that affects the liver with potentially serious lifelong health consequences. The Hepatitis B vaccination has been shown to be safe and effective in providing protective immunity through a series of three shots given over a four to six month period.

Meningitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. It can refer to any illness caused by the type of bacteria called Neisseria meningitides. These illnesses are often severe and can be deadly. The CDC recommends vaccinating people identified as being at increased risk (such as housing students).
