Parents please be aware that Louisiana law now requires all students attending colleges in Louisiana to receive a vaccine for protection againstmeningitis. It is especially important for those students planning to live in dormitories, but is beneficial for all students even while they are in high school. The newest vaccine available is called Menactra and should provide life long protection. The vaccine should be available through your physician, but be aware not all insurance companies are covering this immunization which costs about $120. It can also be given at the St. Tammany Parish Health Unit which is located on the Northshore Regional Medical Center , 105 Medical Center Drive Suite 101 . You can contact the health unit at 646-6445. Be proactive and get your student immunized against meningitis.*Delgado does require the meningitis vaccine even though students do not live on campus.
