SUMMARY

San Diego State University (SDSU) announced that incoming freshman students are now required to present proof of meningococcal B (menB) vaccination within the first 10 days of Fall 2019 classes. 

A class registration ‘hold’ will be placed on SDSU freshman unable to prove menB vaccination, SDSU said in a statement on May 30, 2019. 

This new vaccination policy is related to 3 confirmed cases of meningococcal serogroup B at SDSU during 2018. 

Since the Fall 2018 semester, the university has continued to strongly urge all SDSU undergraduate students 23 years of age or younger, who have not yet been fully vaccinated for serogroup B meningococcal disease, to receive one of the menB vaccines, Bexsero or Trumenba.
