OSU faculty and staff,

Based on employee interest, Oregon State University has partnered with Samaritan Health to hold an optional Meningococcal B vaccination clinic for faculty and staff on April 9 and 10 on the Corvallis campus for faculty and staff on April 9 and 10.

While we are holding these optional vaccination clinics, we want to emphasize that the advice we have received about the risk of Meningococcal B disease for our employees has not changed. Public health authorities continue to advise the university that the “at risk” population for Meningococcal B disease is students 25 years of age and under, particularly those who live in congregate housing, or who are members of campus fraternal organizations.

In previous outbreaks of meningococcal disease on college campuses around the country, university employees have not been found to be at generally increased risk. Because of this, we have not mandated vaccinations for employees. Instead, we have encouraged our faculty and staff to consult with their medical care providers or a local urgent care clinic regarding the risk of contracting Meningococcal B disease and the advisability of vaccination.

If you will be attending the optional MenB clinic, please register at Meningococcal B Vaccination Clinic Signup – OSU Faculty/Staff.  Registering, will help to ensure adequate staffing and availability of the vaccine.  Registrations for the clinics will close at midnight on Wednesday April 4, to allow sufficient time for ordering and delivery of the vaccine for the clinic.

Faculty/Staff vaccination clinic information:

  • Monday, April 9, noon to 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 10, 8 a.m. to noon


If you have any questions, please contact Employee Benefits at employee.benefits@oregonstate.edu.
