University of Oregon Students   It's Time for Round Two

 Need Bexsero 2nd dose? (the 2 dose series of meningococcal vaccine for Meningitis B)

  •  The 2nd dose should be received at least 30 days after the 1st. Bexsero is available at many local pharmacies. Call the pharmacy and your insurance company before you go to ensure availability and coverage.  Pharmacies carrying Bexsero in Eugene/Springfield are listed here.
  • Call the UO Health Center at 541-346-2770 to make an appointment to receive the vaccination there.  

If you need the 2nd dose of Trumenba (the 3 dose series), see the UO Health Center website at https://healthcenter.uoregon.edu/getthevax.aspx for information.

Meningococcus bacteria spread by coughing, sneezing, or close personal contact such as sharing drinks or kissing. You can be a carrier and spread the bacteria without becoming ill. There have been six cases of type B meningococcal disease at the UO since mid-January 2015. One student died. The University of Oregon, Lane County Public Health, and Oregon Health Authority are working to prevent further infections.
