(CNN) — Princeton University will make a meningitis B vaccine available to all undergraduate students, graduate students living in dorms or the Graduate College and annexes, and other university community members with particular medical conditions, the school said Tuesday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have officially recommended that these groups of people receive the vaccine, Princeton said.

The vaccine will not be provided to anyone else or given out anywhere else, the school said.

The first dose of the vaccine will be available at the school’s Frist Campus Center from December 9 to December 12, and the second dose will be available in February. For maximum protection, individuals must receive two doses.
