Attention for parents of Senior High School Students:
If your child is planning on attending a Texas University, they will need a Meningococcal Vaccine now! Senate Bill 1107 passed January 1, 2012 requiring new students, transfer students and returning students to provide proof of a bacterial meningitis vaccination within 5 years of entry into the higher level of education. Texas students receive their first dose upon entry into 7th grade and require a booster dose their senior year in high school. Questions? 361-275-1917.
