LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Purdue and IU are making a move to protect students against a deadly disease.
Starting this fall, incoming students at all of their campuses must be vaccinated against meningitis B.
For years, students were required to get shots against the A, C, W and Y strains of meningitis, but until now, there has been no requirement for the B strain.
The B strain accounts for half of all meningitis cases in the U.S. and every college outbreak since 2011.
