Bacterial Meningitis


Texas law mandates that students under the age of 22 obtain the Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination (BMV) or submit the exemption affidavit in order to remain enrolled in a college or university.

Bacterial meningitis
is a potentially deadly disease that can progress quickly and therefore, students are required to satisfy this requirement by the Aug. 11 compliance deadline.


How To Satisfy the Bacterial Meningitis Requirement

Students can satisfy this requirement by:


  • After registering with Magnus Health SMR using the My Vaccination link in e-Services, you will submit your documents to Magnus Health SMR. You will do so by uploading your documents to your Magnus Health SMR account or by faxing or mailing your documents directly to Magnus Health SMR. Detailed instructions are provided once you log in to your Magnus Health SMR account.


  • If you are declining the vaccination for reason of conscience objection, including a religious belief, you must request the exemption form from the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS). Once requested, the affidavit form will be mailed from TDSHS to you. All affidavit forms will be mailed via U. S. Postal Service within 7 to 10 business days. The affidavit must be completed, notarized, and provided to the Office of Admissions, located in S-350, by the vaccination compliance deadline corresponding to your admitted or readmitted term.


Both options can be completed on campus during Admitted Student Day and should be completed by the compliance deadline.
