Meningitis Vaccination

It is likely that you had the Meningitis C vaccination as a young child, however this year the government has introduced a new time limited ‘fresher’s’ vaccine program. This is another meningitis vaccine which will be only be available to first year university students who are 18 to 24 years old. This vaccine will provide protection against three additional strains of meningitis as well as meningitis C. You are more at risk of getting meningitis just after starting University, as you will be mixing closely with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria. You should get a Meningitis ACWY vaccine ideally before starting University, or as soon as possible after arriving here.

Also this year if you were born between 01/09/1996 and 31/08/1998 and you are currently enrolled at university you may be eligible for the vaccine if you have never had it before. Please contact us for more information.
