Going to University?

Protection from meninigitis and septicaemia

If you're planning to go to university, please make an appointment as soon as possible for a MenACWY vaccine before leaving for university. You are more at risk of meningitis and septicaemia 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.
