TEC 51.9192 requires all students under age 22 entering an institution of higher education are required to provide current proof of vaccination against bacterial meningitis (an immunization given within five years of the date of intended enrollment) or meet certain requirements for declining such a vaccination. Newly admitted students who have not provided documentation of vaccination have a meningitis vaccination deficiency hold placed on their account. The hold will be removed once the appropriate immunization documentation has been provided to Texas A&M.
Texas A&M has partnered with Med+Proctor for the submission of bacterial meningitis vaccination records. The hold will be removed once the appropriate immunization documentation has
been provided through Med+Proctor. Please go to medproctor.com/tamu-immunization to register and upload your proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination.
The meningitis deficiency hold will prevent you from checking into your New Student Conference and registering for classes, so it is imperative you submit documentation at least two weeks prior to your NSC.
Submit your record
Register with Med+Proctor in order to complete and submit your Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination record. Remember the following when you register with Med+Proctor:
- Use your UIN (Universal Identification Number) to create your account. This is the nine digit number you received when you applied.
- There is no charge to upload your Bacterial Meningitis Record through Med+Proctor. They also offer a service with additional features for $10. This is completely optional.
- Download the TAMU Immunization Certificate and take it to your physician or vaccination provider for them to fill out.
- Upload the TAMU Immunization Certificate to Med+Proctor.
Students must receive the vaccination no later than 10 days before the first day of the semester in which the student enrolls. Therefore, all new students enrolling for the fall 2019 semester must receive the vaccination by August 16 or before your conference (whichever date is earlier). For students attending the August 20-21 conference, you are strongly encouraged to submit your Evidence of Vaccination by July 6 so you can be preregistered for your classes by your academic advisor.
To determine if you have satisfied the evidence of vaccination requirement, log into AIS at applicant.tamu.edu and ensure that a check mark is present on the bacterial meningitis checklist item found under the â€śAdditional documents required if admittedâ€ť section. Please allow a few days for Med+Proctor staff to complete processing on your immunization document.
If you arrive at your NSC and have not yet fulfilled this requirement, you will not be able to check in and must take care of your immunization requirement immediately. If you have not received a vaccination against bacterial meningitis, you may go to the A.P. Beutel Health Center on campus for the vaccination.
For students enrolling in courses summer 2019, you need to submit your meningitis documentation by the following deadlines:
- Summer Session I: May 18th
- Summer Session II: June 22nd
