I already received two doses of the meningitis B vaccine.  Do I need a booster dose?

Which meningitis B vaccines are available at the University?

Bexsero, a two-dose vaccine, and Trumenba, a two or three-dose vaccine, are available at University Health Services.  Bexsero was available at the clinics.

How much should I expect to pay out of pocket for the meningitis B vaccine provided at University Health Services?

I have the Student Health Plan.  What should I expect with regard to billing for the vaccine?

If you have the Student Health Plan (SHP), you will not see any charges to your student account.
