The Oct. 18 voluntary recall of the meningitis vaccine (Menomune) has no bearing on students immunized at UNI's Student Health Clinic.

Sue Courts, director of the clinic, said the recall affects only single-dose vials. 'We use multiple-does vials of the medication,' she explained. Courts noted fewer than 50 students have been immunized at the clinic this year.
