ACC, my local community college requires us under state law, if we are under the age of 30, to get a vaccine for meningitis otherwise we can't register for classes next semester.

Who else thinks this is crap, mandatory vaccinations for a weak virus that's not even worse than the flu.

What if you pass it on to someone with a weak immune system?

Two people died from meningitis at my College a few years ago. It's not something minor.

Lots of people die from the flu too. It's not my fault if you take crap care of your body.


It's a good chance you'll die if you get meningitis and don't get treatment within a short amount of time. The flu is much easier to ride out if you're not a very healthy person.

How the hell were you ever 5 years old and DIDN'T get that shot? It's pretty common for school-aged kids.

You know, it's just a shot.

I hate syringes with a passion, but it's a single vaccine. You have to get it what, once every few years? And it'll keep you healthy?

I don't really see the big deal.

But I see no problem with them mandating this. Meningitis is deadly, easily transmutable, and affects college students more than other age groups.

And, on the flip side, it will keep all the stupids too stubborn to get it out of school.

Here's the governmental BS I have to go through for an exemption. Have to send in a letter for request of a forum, then wait until they mail the forum to me, then fill it out, then mail it back in, wait for approval, then wait until they ship me the exemption, then somehow give it to someone at ACC to confirm it so I can be exempt...It's crap.

If you've already had the vaccination, why do you need it again? I've prolly already had it when I was like 6 months old, when they give you the majority of your vaccinations.

I also don't ever get sick, never had the flu, and never been vaccinated for it. And I take care of people with the flu all the time and still don't get it.

Which I am. I figured that was covered by saying I hated them - they freak me out every time I get a shot, and I shudder every time I see one, but they're not that painful as long as you get an actual doctor to administer them(Not too hard, and really how it should be done), keep the arm relaxed, and look away. Plus it's only a short while. If I can avoid it I won't take them, but it's a small price for college enrollment in my mind.

Just get the shot. It's 30 minutes of your life and it could prevent some seriously bad consequences.

LOL are you scared of needles? Just look away, listen to music, bite on a pillow like a little girl having her first time, whatever

ive had shots in the roof of my mouth for my wisdom teeth extraction- everything else just pales in comparison. Except a shot to the crotch would probably be worse.

What harm would it do to get it? Besides the whole gay thing.



Because I don't want it, nor do I need it, so why waste my money on something I don't need? It's an annoyance to me, and everyone else, we are collage students, does anyone really think we have the time, or money to get random vaccines?

I get panic attacks. Just recently I was at the doctors and they wanted to give me a Cortisol shot. I, thankfully, managed to talk my way out of it.

I'm having a mild anxiety attack right now just from reading and being a part of this thread >_<

i think they should have two syringes, one full of vaccine and one heroin, and with a flip of a coin, you get injected with either, i think it will get more people vaccinated, and save lives.

Seems like not getting it would be more trouble given all the paperwork. Not getting meningitis is worth the cost of admission the way i see it

I have yet to see anyone who has gotten it. Not even on the news. Everyone I know who got the flu vaccine still got the 2 week throwing your guts out flu, every friken year. I'll take my chances.
