Meningococcal Information For College Communities

On this page:

Risk for College Students

The risk of vaccine-preventable meningococcal disease is low among Oregon college students. From 2010-2014, a total of 127 cases of meningococcal disease were reported to Oregon Health Authority; two of those occurred in Oregon college students. Both of those cases were caused by serogroup Y.

College freshmen who want to reduce their already low risk can consider getting meningococcal vaccine.
