CORVALLIS, Ore. -- A case of Meningitis B has recently been reported at Oregon State University.

Steve Clark, a spokesperson for the university, said this is the fourth case of meningococcal disease within the past year. As a result, they have adopted a new policy requiring all undergraduate students to get vaccinated for the B strain.

He said students who are unable to show proof of vaccination by November 5th will not be able to enroll for winter quarter.

Vaccination clinics are being offered at Oregon State University after a student was recently diagnosed with meningococcal disease.
Testing has determined it is serogroup B of the disease.

The Benton County Health Department is working to identify anyone who may have been in close enough contact with that student so they can be treated.

Wednesday, Nov. 8 at Memorial Union Multi-Purpose Room 13
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Immunizations Offered: Meningococcal (MCV4) or Meningococcal B
