College students have increased risk of some contagious diseases due to the close living quarters and interactions they have with one another. Because of the risk of transmission to a large number of people, some vaccines are required at Lipscomb. The State of Tennessee made mandatory to all residential students to receive the meningococcal vaccine that protects against bacterial meningitis. The Centers for Disease Control has lots of information on their Meningitis website including who is at risk, what causes it, signs and symptoms of the disease, and prevention.
Required for all students:
We administer many vaccinations in the Health Center for a fee. These are available to students, faculty, and staff. A consent will need to be signed and payment will be due at the time of vaccination in the form of cash, check, or credit/debit cards. Health Services does not bill insurance and payment for vaccines varies depending on health insurance plans. We can give you a CPT code if you wish to personally submit a claim for reimbursement.
What we offer:
Hepatitis B (series of 3)
