The Texas Legislature passed SB 1107, effective January 1, 2012, requiring all students under the age of 30 entering an institution of higher education in Texas to either receive a vaccination against bacterial meningitis or meet certain criteria to decline the vaccination before the first day of the semester.

Midwestern State University has contracted Magnus Health to collect, review and securely store all student documents pertaining to the meningitis vaccine. Your must register through Magnus Health SMR ensuring that your registration for classes at MSU is not delayed.*

You will need your Mustangs ID to log into your Magnus Health account through MSU's Web World.

*Students will not be able to register for class until this new requirement has been completed.  The vaccine must be administered within the past five years and at least 10 days before the first official day of classes.
