I wonder how much this vaccine maker donated to Perrys campaign http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/deer...cle_e55019f6-919d-5fd7-a03c-6e05337b4c76.html Going to college in 2012? If youâre under 30, you need a vaccine A San Jacinto College committee is putting together plans for implementing a new state law that requires incoming college students to receive a vaccination or booster against bacterial meningitis. The law goes into effect Jan. 1. The new law was passed after a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found college-age individuals between 17 and 21 are particularly vulnerable to the disease. The meningitis vaccine is required for all new students to San Jacinto College for the spring 2012 term. Transfer students are considered new students. Under the law, a student, or parent or guardian, must show evidence of receipt of an initial bacterial meningitis vaccination dose or booster during the five-year period preceding, and at least 10 days prior to the first day of the first semester in which the student initially enrolls at an institution, or following a break in enrollment of at least one fall or spring semester at the same or another institution.
