Why is getting a bacterial meningitis vaccination the only mandatory vaccine for a collage student? Shouldn't there be other vaccines too?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

there are other vaccines they must have had just to get through k-12 grades.
Recommended vaccines for college would be Hep A/Boostrix/HPV vaccines in addition to others normally received
