We are now offering a new vaccination programme for all 17 and 18 year olds born between 01 September 1996 and 31 August 1997. This vaccine protects against meningitis (inflammation of the brain) and septicemia (blood poisoning) caused by meningococcal groups A, C, W and Y.
If you’re planning to go to university, please make an appointment as soon as possible before leaving for university. You are at more risk of meningitis and septicemia in the first weeks at university when you mix with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria, which is usually spread through prolonged close contact.
