CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming lawmaker is trying again to vaccinate college students against meningitis.

Last year, Sen. Bill Landen’s proposal failed largely because it would cost $335,000 a year. This time the Casper Republican is proposing that students pay for the shots themselves.

Students would have to get the shot within 30 days of entering the University of Wyoming or any of the state’s seen community colleges.

The shot costs $125 at UW’s clinic. Students there already have to pay about $127 for vaccinations.

Two-thirds of lawmakers gathering for the new budget session would have to agree before the bill could be considered.
