Starting this year, the meningitis vaccine is mandatory for all new college students under 30-years-old and those re-enrolling in class after taking a semester off.
Before, the vaccine was only required for most students living in dorms.
By law, students must have the vaccine 10 days before school starts but a limited supply has forced South Plains College administrators to push back the deadline its students must turn in proof they got the vaccine.
Originally, SPC students had to get the vaccine by 4:00 Friday, January 6th, but that deadline has been pushed back to January 17th.
Places that don't have the vaccine include CVS, Caprock Discount Drug and at least one United Supermarkets pharmacy.
As of Friday afternoon, Walgreens and the Lubbock Health Department had the vaccine available.
Prices for the vaccine vary, but Walgreens told KAMC it will cost students $133.
A pharmacist at United Supermarkets said the vaccine will run you about the same as Walgreens once they get another shipment in.
If you don't have insurance, the health department is offering the vaccine for $10.
