When will I get the vaccination?
It’s recommended that all first time university entrants (‘freshers’) up to 25 years old should have the MenACWY vaccine before or soon after they start university. New university students are at particularly high risk in the first weeks of term when they will come into contact with many new people of a similar age. Do I have to have it? No, but the best way to help protect yourself is by having the MenACWY vaccine. You have to consent to have the vaccine.
What do I need to do if I’m starting university this autumn?
New university students are at particularly high risk in the first weeks of term. You should always register with a GP in the area when you start university and you can arrange to get the vaccine there if you haven’t already had it. You should do that straight away – ideally before you start university or as soon as possible after – don’t leave it till later. If in doubt, please phone the surgery.
