Bacterial Meningitis

The Alamo Colleges District & San Antonio College uses Magnus Health to collect and process student bacterial meningitis information.  Magnus Health is a secure and easy-to-use website for submitting bacterial meningitis documentation.

The Law

Texas State Law (SB 1107) established the requirement for students entering any Texas institution of higher education to provide proper documentation showing they have received the bacterial meningitis vaccination within five years and at least 10 calendar days before the beginning of the semester.

  • Determine If The Law Applies
