Do I have to receive the Meningitis and the Hepatitis B vaccine before attending school at Christian Brothers University?
You do not have to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine before attending Christian Brothers University. You may sign a waiver located on the Heath Form if you do not wish to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine. The university is required by state law to provide all new students with information about diseases and vaccines. The decision is yours.
If you are a NEW resident living in any Christian Brothers University Residence Hall, you ARE required by state law to receive the Meningitis shot.
