Texas Health and Human Services Updated Bacterial Meningitis Information Requirements

Posted Date: 09/11/2019

Texas Department of State Health Services

To Texas School Districts:


In the 86th Legislature, HB 3884 required the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to create procedures for school districts to provide information relating to bacterial meningitis to students and parents. This requirement was previously assigned to the Texas Education Agency (TEA). DSHS has created a website with bacterial meningitis information aimed at students and parents.

School districts should provide the information from the DSHS website on the district website. Alternatively districts may provide a link to the DSHS page on the district website. For school districts that do not maintain a website, the information should be provided in hard copy to each student. A printable version of the information is available on the website. 

For questions, please contact us at or 800-252-9152.
