MEASLES PRECAUTION REMINDER
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State Health Departments are investigating a multi-state outbreak of measles. While no cases have been identified in Texas A&M students or the surrounding region, it is important to be aware of this outbreak. Most students received 2 doses of the MMR vaccine as children. This vaccine is highly effective at preventing measles. If you are unsure of your vaccination status, check your immunization records. Blood tests can also be done to determine immunity if vaccination records are unavailable. Student Health Services can answer questions and assist students in need of vaccination. For more information, please visit the Student Health Services Preventive Medicine website.
For more information regarding measles, see http://www.cdc.gov/measles/about/faqs.html.
ATTENTION STUDENTS: Beginning June 1, 2014, Student Health Services will be implementing a $5 office visit charge for most clinic visits. In addition, the missed appointment fee will be increasing to $25 at that time.
For any questions, please contact Patient Services at 979-458-8310.
