The University of Arizona is joining other schools in the PAC-12 to get students vaccinated against a new strain of meningitis. 

UA started "Cats-Vax" to spread the word about meningitis B.

The FDA recently approved a vaccine for the B-strain, and it's still not required for students.

The vaccine is available for all that attend UA, and it will be given out on the mall this month.
