South Plains College students have an increased deadline to get a now mandatory vaccine. Many Lubbock pharmacies have ran out of the meningitis vaccine, which is now mandatory for new college students or those returning after taking a semester off.

KAMC 28 reports the law requires students to have the vaccine ten days before classes start. Originally SPC required proof of the shot yesterday by 4:00, however that deadline has been changed to January 17th. The Lubbock health department and Walgreens have the vaccine available, and United Supermarkets locations are awaiting a shipment. The vaccine runs about $130. Those without health insurance can get the vaccine for $10 at the health department.
