MEN ACWY - ELIGIBILITY
Fresher students going to university for the first time are advised to have a vaccination to prevent Meningitis and septicaemia, which can be deadly.
The Men ACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different strains of the meningococcal bacteria that cause meningitis and blood poisoning (septicaemia): A, C, W and Y.
Anyone born after 1st September 1996 and under 25 who have never received a MEN ACWY vaccine or not had one after their 10th birthday.
Any student irrelevant of year of study, who have never had a Men C vaccine are eligible up to the age of 25.
HAVE YOU HAD 2 MMR VACCINES?
MMR Vaccine will protect you against three infectious diseases: Measles, Mumps and Rubella
Public Health England (PHE) has confirmed three recent outbreaks in Leeds, Liverpool and now also in Birmingham.
There are currently large measles outbreaks across Europe, with Romania, Italy and Greece being the worst affected countries, and there is a continued risk of imported cases.
Measles is one of the most highly infectious communicable diseases. Spending 15 minutes or more in direct contact with someone infected with measles can be significant and long enough to contract this illness.
Please ensure that you have had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine. Most people will have been vaccinated in early childhood and the vaccines last for life.
If you have only received one dose or never been vaccinated you can book an appointment with one of the practice nurses at the Health Centre. This vaccine is free with the NHS.
We hope you find the website useful and informative.
