New students going to university for the first time are advised to have a vaccination to prevent meningitis W disease.
The Men ACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia – meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases.
If you have not had your Meningitis ACWY Vaccine before arriving at the University, please ring the surgery on 01227 469333 to find out the date of the next walk in clinic. No appointment necessary for these clinics – first come first served.
For more details got to our New Student Letter which goes into more detail.
