Angelina College Partnering with Kiwanians to Provide Vaccinations

0

Angelina College is partnering with the Kiwanis Club of Lufkin to provide meningitis vaccinations to seniors at Lufkin High School.

As of Oct. 1, 2013, Texas state law requires that all new and re-entry college students under the age of 22 must provide evidence of a bacterial meningitis vaccination or booster within the past five years and at least ten days prior to the start of school.

The Kiwanis Club of Lufkin is funding an initiative to ensure that area high school students who are likely to attend Angelina College are able to receive the required meningitis vaccine. For some students, the cost of this vaccine has been a barrier to them attending college. The Lufkin Kiwanis Club, working with Angelina College created a funding initiative to remove this obstacle.

For more information about this partnership, contact Dana Smithhart at dsmithhart@angelina.edu.
