Teen Talk - Going away to university this year?
What immunisations do I need?
Get in contact with us and we can give you the Men ACWY vaccination before you go. It’s a vaccination against 4 types of Meningitis – Men A, Men C, Men W and Men Y. You’ll have had vaccinations against Meningitis C when you were little but this is a booster to ensure immunity in new environments. Illnesses thrive in places where there are a lot of people. And in freshers week, there will be a LOT of people!
The Men ACWY vaccination is aimed at all Freshers aged 17-18 but if you are a second or third year going back, get in touch if you are interested in the vaccination and we will pass your query onto our nurses.
